short cuts

I think that Emacs is a fantastic editor for programming.
The problem is that it is impossible to use due to either it's lack of or 
ridicilous short cuts. I do not want to be rude, but the fact is that it has 
ruined my right arm. This is  because I have to use the mouse for all the 
simple things I have to do frequently, like browsing/moving between files in 
the buffer. Instead of using just ctrl tab, F8, or alt + nr, which works so 
good in other editors, I either have use the f***** mouse or use the following,
ridicilous combinations of short cuts: "ctrl x ctrl b" + "move up/down with ->"
 + "ctrl x o" + " ctrl x 1". I think it's insane. 
Also why should it be so impossible to use <tab> to highlight the option in 
the bar: why not "tab b" instead of clicking on "Buffers" or "Files" with the 
disgusting mouse which lefts my arm acheing????  
'Til then I will have to use KWrite, but I want to be able to use Emacs 
without going insane and ruin my right arm.
