I just tap the windows key, start typing what I want and whack enter
Oh believe me, I have my entire system set up for minimal effort. lol I'd have to call it the The Lazy Man's Paradise. I use the Start Menu search for a lot of things, but I also use my pinned items. I got it all down to a science where I have my most frequently used pinned items as far left as possible, and they all fit within the first 10 (WinKey + 0 is for the 10th pinned item). So, if my hands are on the Home Row, then I'll use the keyboard to open a pinned item. If my right hand is on my mouse, then I might use my mouse - unless my cursor is so far away that using the keyboard would be faster. For things that I rarely use that aren't even pinned to the Taskbar, well of course I use Start Menu search and I only type what's needed to get a matching result so close that all I have to do is press Enter.
I also take advantage of the Quick Launch toolbar.
So yeah, I have everything as close to me as possible, so to speak. It's very "ergonomic", in a sense. I'm not new to computers. ;) I'm one of those people who cringe when I watch other people use a computer. I'm always thinking, "Oh come on. There's a much faster and easier way to do that! Argh! You're way too slow!"
Edit: I have to be honest. I'm a little bit insulted because what you said ("You have a special talent of making things a lot more effort than they need to be") is descriptive of a newbie. I'm so much the opposite of what you said there that it's almost at a ridiculous level. I mean, I live at my computer, and I've been living at it for more than 3-4 years now. I also started in DOS (I started before that, but not really with much interest yet). Today, I have everything refined and streamlined as much as possible in order to minimize or eliminate unnecessary keystrokes and mouse usage. Again, it's almost at a ridiculous level. When I watch anyone else use their computer, I just go, "omg come on".
Edit #2: Oh, and double-clicking would add more effort than is necessary for me.
