I use this program, on occassion:
Guillotine is a FREE and lightweight Windows utility that allows you to quickly and naturally access items you commonly (and uncommonly) use like programs, bookmarks, contacts, and web searches. The idea is to find things quickly just by typing a few keys, selecting your item, and going on your merry way. It's much more intuitive than hunting down those items as you normally would. It may take a while to break your old habits, but once you do, you'll see how much more intuitive it is to your normal workflow.
The FARR screenshot above is pretty similar to how this program works, but you don't need any "extra commands"...actually, I am going to try FARR to check it out, as I am sure it does more than Guillotine...
