Don't. The command line is there for a reason. Learn to actually USE your operating system.
When making the switch from Windows to Linux, the biggest obstacle is overcoming the paradigm shift that Microsoft introduced - the notion that there is nothing but a graphical environment in which the user is forced to operate. The command line is a lot more flexible and powerful than a pure graphical environment could ever possibly be. My advice is not to neuter yourself by clinging to broken, useless notions of how an operating system should work introduced by a group of amateurs who ignored the rules.
