Idea:

...so you don't have do press Down arrow key each time you want select it.

I'm often running Skype. And I'm doing it with my keyboard. Now I have to make 4 steps:

1. summon mint menu with "Super" key (I've already changed this shortcut from Control+Super)
2. type "sky" as a filter
3. press Down (or Up) arrow on my keyboard to select Skype item
4. press Enter

If the first item was immediately selected, I wouldn't have to perform step 3.

I would like to promote this idea, though this was already rejected.

The filter field is also used for the configurable file search feature... pressing return defaults to that.

@Vincent: Super-key shortcut doesn't have to interfere with other shortcuts. Look at Win Vista: StartMenu appears after Super-key shortcut, but other shortcuts - like Super+D (show desktop), or Super+R (show Run dialog), or Super+L (lock screen) - are still working. So it is possible :)

Anyway, walking through mintMenu using keyboard is really hard.
Just try to Turn Off your computer using MintMenu and keyboard, and you'll know what I mean :)
It's not intuitive at all.

DJCrashdummy > because setting mintMenu to open with Super_L would interfere with a LOT of Compiz keyboard shortcuts.

by the way: I also changed the shortcut to open the mint menu to "Super_L"!
--> so why isn't the default shotcut "Super_L"??? i think most people are used to open their menu with "Super_L"!

Add skype to your favourites in the menue.
Or define a keyboard shortcut.
