You can also Alt-Tab out of the game, which has the effect of minimising it, but this too does not work with all games. It does work with Half-Life 1 and 2, so there's a chance it will work OK with Counter-Strike.

If you hit ctrl+alt+delete, and click Start Task Manager, the Taskbar should come up. Then you'll be able to click on Aero Peek, or hit another window to minimize the game and switch to the process you want.

1/Alt+Enter
2/Window button+D (or M)
3/Alt+Ctrl+Del
4/Alt+Tab
Sometime, games such as Counter strike source doesn't allow you to minimize it, it can cause your game crashes
It helps if you run your game in the SAME resolution as the desktop alot though, bear that in mind...
