Why do more people not pay attention to the 5th "dark horse" point, the current mouse position? For me, corners are beyond useless as they are so far away from the mouse.

Perhaps the answer would be to have a command (maybe a mouse button or button combo) that brings the corner menus right to where mouse is. A sort of mini-desktop centered around your mouse pointer with the four corner menus right there. You simply call up the menus and choose the one you want without worrying about excessive mouse movement.

Just a thought...
