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.

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.
+
<!-- Expand on the summary, if appropriateA couple sentences suffices to explain the goal, but the more details you can provide the better. -->
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.

The output would continue to allow the user to click on a mnenonic that takes the place of each radio button. The mnemonic for the current page would be highlighted. Currently the radio button for the current page is filled.
