Wait -- what do you mean, "IF you use the keyboard for everything"? Are
they allowing tech writers to use mice now? Back in my day, you were
lucky if they gave you a full numeric keypad to enter the ASCII codes...

Too bad about Type and Curse. LOL. I can see how that could be
frustrating if you use keyboard for everything.

I guess I never really thought about it since I moved away from using
Start Menu ages ago when MS allowed folders of shortcuts on the task
bar. I keep collections of tools I use all the time in these folders in
a system that predates Mac OS X "Stacks".

Have you thought about assigning shortcut keys to the apps you use all
the time? Takes less time than Windows-key Tab, and is a built-in
Windows feature. I used to use a free program called "Shortcut Map" to
assign program shortcuts without conflicting with others that existed
(it probably hasn't been updated for Windows 7).
