No problem, I dislike it :-)

Great!  It was the main intention.

No, there is a direct shortcut.  Currently there are 2 "long" ways
to access system packages from "M-x guix":

1) setting current profile to the system one ("p" in "packages"
sub-popup) and openning installed packages (with "i" key), or

2) through *Guix Profiles* buffer (which can be accessed with "M-x guix
P a"): there you can move to the system profile and press "P".

I'm afraid, I am not going to add a shortcut for system packages inside
"packages" sub-popup, as it and "profiles" sub-popup are designed to
work with the current profile, so if you want to open packages or
generations from some profile, you need to make it the current one at

But maybe it would be good to add a new sub-popup for system commands,
where a key for system packages will be placed, WDYT?
