    I can't accep that: my remarks have not been sarcastic. They have been measured responses to very cursory replies. It's not like words cost money.

    Nor does it cost money to read what a poster has asked.

    The answers have not been very clear and have assumed I'm asking a question I'm not. And yet I took a bit of trouble to explain the whole thing.

    It is, indeed, sometimes better not to answer than to answer in an unhelpful way.

    Click on the search icon and type apps: f and it will list all apps with the letter f in the name.

    Thanks... I'm not sure what you mean by the "search icon"... so I tried the "Winkey" / "Start key"...

    Then I typed "apps: f"... and all the apps that normally come up when you type the first few letters of an app are indeed shown.

    The problem is that it's actually a couple of shortcuts I've got in C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs that I'm trying to start up conveniently... e.g. a shortcut of a Word document called "Proc.docx - Shortcut".

    Unfortunately this does not show up by going Winkey --> "apps: p" or "apps: proc"...

    This document *is* listed, however, in the "All apps" list... but the accursed Microsoft does not appear to have enabled key press navigation in this list (either version, as detailed in my original post).

    Thanks though!
