I work exclusively off the command line.  It is much easier for me to use
than navigating a menu tree, and speeds up screen refresh time when I am
working remotely (which is often.)  I typically keep a "scratch pad" session
of Notepad open that I use for copy/paste.  I rarely use F9/recall or page
up/down to review previous commands.  It's faster for me to copy/paste than
to repeatedly press F9 and hope I don't spin by the command I'm looking for.
The Notepad session also serves as an e-mailable log of what to do (so I can
say, document what transpired whilst fixing a problem.)

It seems to me that the more senior people tend to use the command line,
while the newer folks use the menus.  It's more a matter of preference than
anything else, I suppose.  Why do you ask?
