Whether you’re on Drupal 7 with it’s clean administration theme, or still on Drupal 6, there’re ways to make interface more userfriendly and improve the workflow.
Administration Menu module is a must for Drupal 6, but it’s still helpful on Drupal 7 as a replacement for the built in admin toolbar. It’s main feature is a toolbar with dropdown menus where you can drill down the entire menu tree (you can even add local tasks such as tabs to it).
