1. Select your window via Windows Alt-Tab keypress. Or, in Word, View > Switch Windows > Choose window to close.

2. Press Ctrl-W, or pick the X at the upper right corner of the document window



I don't see the document window minimize/restore/close buttons. Only the application window buttons (see graphic).
