<!-- Client side. For the "ALL" activities page, replace the Gnome3.16+ radio button presentation  with a three or two character string representing the initial letters of the very first icon corresponding to that page. Justication -- My computer has 5 users, and to aid users in locating an icon for an application whose name is not known exactly, would eliminate selecting and scrolling through the each radio button until the desired application is found.

I am not a developer, but an end-user. My All page has 9 radio buttons. This request would require a developer to review the practicality.
This should link to your home wiki page so we know who you are.

<!-- My computer is shared between a blogger, game player, C programmer, music author, and e-book reader/researcher. Currently my system, within the Gnome  "All" page of Activities has 9 radio buttons. When a program is not in the "frequent" page of the Activities presentation, it takes either scrolling or a binary search using the radio buttons in order to land on the page of icons that are of interest.
 +
By introducting the three character (or even two character) mnemonic in place of each radio button, zooming in to a good starting point for a visual search is facilitatedThe mnemonic serves in a way similar to the tabs on the large printed Paper bound book Dictionaries.

<!-- Makes the Fedora "Applications All" facility easier and faster to use, without removing functionality. I am not aware of the effort to replace the radio buttons by a mnemonic field but it is practical if doneThe capabilities proposed will provide a means to reduce the number of mouse key clicks and unnecessary scrolling in order to locate an application by it's image. This change by reducing the number of mouse clicks will contribute to avoiding finger tendon muscle pain at the end of session of Gnome use.-->
