Is there a way to monitor my monero address without the need to download the entire blockchain? And I don't want to constantly paste my private view key into a block explorer to see it neither. I want it to be able to just click a button or visit a link and be able to see my balance from time to time. What solutions are there?

You can download the official GUI and set up a view-only wallet, without downloading the entire blockchain. You would still have to sync your wallet with the network. This doesn't take a long time.
Connecting to remote node - so you don't have to download the blockchain.
