There's a cool module worth checking out: Administration menu. This is good especially for Drupal 7 as it replaces the top toolbar with which you are used to handling your admin tasks.
For me it was quite annoying to always have to click for instance
Structure - Blocks - Add Block (3 clicks every time just to get there) if I wanted to add a new block. And I know, you can add shortcuts, but still, not for everything.
So I installed Administration Menu. This module creates a dropdown type of admin menu with which you can directly go wherever you want with just one click.
Check it out.
NB: You have to disable the Toolbar module as it conflicts with Administration Menu.
