To me, having to open something then search for something is a really
tedious work around to having well organised menus, in the first place.

  graphics - image viewer
  sound & video - VLC media player

No click navigate, click navigate, click navigate...  
Nor, click, navigate, navigate, navigate, send out the search party...
Nor, click, navigate, wait, start typing, wait...
Nor, click in the box, start typing...

Mousing's bad enough, without having to pick up the mouse to do start to
do something that requires going back to using the keyboard.
