So in almost every game I play if I hit the windows key on keyboard it bring me to the desktop, but not in LoL.

Is there like an option or another way to do this, so that I can go and do something on the desktop while in the game (say I want to put music while I'm waiting to re spawn). I'm pretty new at that whole windows things...

There are occasions where I'll notice Alt-Tab not switching out, it's as though League of Legends defaults to being on the front of your screen no matter what options change.

The Window's key has always only brought up the taskbar. The only reason it minimizes in other games is because the other games were played in full screen. There IS IN FACT a command to go to the desktop you must simultaneously press the Windows key + the D key.

TL;DR: Windows Key + D and move on.
