How to disconnect a Windows 7 PC client from an ubuntu TightVNC server?

Last Modified: 2015-04-27
Seems like it should be simple, I assumed just a key combination or some icon I could drop on the desktop.  I am accessing a ubuntu 14 machine, which is a TightVNC server using a Windows 7 TightVNC client.  No connection problems.  But I see no way to kill the session, so I have to ^-alt-del to get my Windows Task Manager and kill the VNC program.  Surely there is a simple way to disconnect from within the session.  The desktop is Windows 7-64.  Both machines are within my LAN.
