quote: But I keep coming across things it does that either make no sense, or are just poorly thought out.
quote: How it works is I press the Start key on my keyboard, and then I type the first 3 letters of the name of the program that I want to start. Then I either press Enter, or the down arrow key once or twice and then Enter.
