Hello James,

I don't have a specific answer to your question but have something related.
I have been experimenting with various ways to cut down on keystrokes and mouse gestures within Mathematica. I queried the forum on Jan 27 and got some interesting reponses.

One useful method I have found is to use a Windows based macro writing program called MacroExpress (Google it and download a free trial). With this program it is very easy to assign keyboard macros to perform most Mathematica operations. Also, and this speaks to your question, you can assign these macros to a floating menu.  I placed a macro for "shift enter" on such a menu and can evaluate a selected cell with a single left mouse click.

In a similar vein, I have installed a speech recognition program called Dragon Naturally Speaking. With it I can evaluate a selected cell by saying "Press shift enter"

Finally, it's relatively inexpensive to find a mouse with all sorts of programmable buttons.
