Label AppManager icons with hot key 100/200LX

When you install System Manager compliant programs in AppManager, you can assign a "hot key" combination to start the program without having to highlight the icon. So, for example, I can set a program up so that it starts by pressing (CTRL)-(F5) or (ALT)-(F10).

However, I frequently found myself wondering which key combination was assigned to the System compliant programs. My solution was to name the hotkey in the icon label.

Let's say I set up the TigerFox game in AppManager to be activated by pressing (CTRL)-(F5). In the name field of the Add (or Edit) application screen, I enter the label TFox [^F5]. AppManager will display the following label below the icon: TFox [^F5]

The ^F5 in the label instantly reminds me of the hot key combo and saves having to use the arrow keys to highlight the icon to start the application.

In the example above, the ^ indicates the CTRL key. You can indicate the ALT key with a @.
