Right-click it on the taskbar and choose Close?

 

Ctrl-Alt-Del and close it in the task manager?

Well, depending on how forcefully something has hung, sometimes the Task Manager just takes a very long time to appear. I've seen it pop up after about 5 minutes...

 

But if the Windows key +R will respond you can run cmd and use Tasklist to identify the hung task then Taskkill to end it:

I usually just turn the power off. :)

Your suggestion was helpful but I remember a keyboard shortcut key that includes a window logo key and a few more keys to end a hang program. please tell me all the keys that includes window logo key to end a process or program.

Perhaps someone who has more call than me to escape from hung applications can think of something else. There's a list of Win Key shortcuts here:
