as mplay mentions, using NAT to re-organize stuff is really something you would need to learn at some point if you ever wanted to take a step towards being a nebula 'power user'. it's just like using a computer where knowing how to organize files yourself on your hard drive makes you more able to do things efficiently (except when microsoft randomly changes things about windows explorer or just outright cripples functions for no apparent reason).
i think the next program thing wouldn't be as useful as you might think in the long run. consider a set of programs that has multiple kernel versions for each. so you are going to slowly cycle between every one, including multiple duplicates? once you get somewhat familiar with a set you wouldn't need 'next program', so you would probably only use it when you got a new set, and even then 'last folder' would be quicker because of dupes.
i think last folder and using NAT to organize is your best, quickest way to find what you want, and to become more organized to help you save more time in the future also.
when you remember the program-number, you can click on the number at the right top of the programname and then type a number of a program. you just need to make a habit of remembering the programnumbers in the menu of programs. good braingymn and very fast
