Many developers manage their workflow inside of the Favorites tab. Within Favorites, you can use the Last Opened tab or any other tasks or item groups that you have marked as favorites.
The default sort for each of these lists is by item name. Try sorting by item type (field, file, function) instead. Then leave it for a few days and see if it is easier on your eyes.
If the Type column is not showing, right-click on any of the other column headings (Item, Details, Description, etc) and choose Type.
