Menus? What menus?

If you hate C-x C-f you can rebind it (C-o in CUA, right?), you can use the
"disk key" as provided by disk.el, you have dired, or you get Windows
Explorer calling ... what was that? gnuclientw.exe? I think that's what I
used. I just browsed folders with Windows Explorer and pressed Enter on a
file, or 2*clicked it, or drag'n'dropped it into Emacs.

In Emacs, and this is just an opinion, activating menus from keyboard is a
corner-case, not a normal (as in "frequently performed") procedure. But, if
that's your procedure, fine. But then, I don't think it's Emacs making it
difficult ...
