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.
 
  
 
== Benefit to Fedora ==
 
== Benefit to Fedora ==
  
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 done? The 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.

<!-- What is the benefit to the distribution?  Will the software we generate be improved? How will the process of creating Fedora releases be improved?
 +
 
 +
      Be sure to include the following areas if relevant:
 +
      If this is a major capability update, what has changed?
 +
          For example: This change introduces Python 5 that runs without the Global Interpreter Lock and is fully multithreaded.
 +
      If this is a new functionality, what capabilities does it bring?
 +
          For example: This change allows package upgrades to be performed automatically and rolled-back at will.
 +
      Does this improve some specific package or set of packages?
 +
          For example: This change modifies a package to use a different language stack that reduces install size by removing dependencies.
 +
      Does this improve specific Spins or Editions?
 +
          For example: This change modifies the default install of Fedora Workstation to be more in line with the base install of Fedora Server.
 +
      Does this make the distribution more efficient?
 +
          For example: This change replaces thousands of individual %post scriptlets in packages with one script that runs at the end.
 +
      Is this an improvement to maintainer processes?
 +
          For example: Gating Fedora packages on automatic QA tests will make rawhide more stable and allow changes to be implemented more smoothly.
 +
      Is this an improvement targeted as specific contributors?
 +
          For example: Ensuring that a minimal set of tools required for contribution to Fedora are installed by default eases the onboarding of new contributors.
 +
 
 +
    When a Change has multiple benefits, it's better to list them all.
 +

<!-- This does not need to be a full-fledged document. Describe the dimensions of tests that this change implementation is expected to pass when it is done.

This section partially overlaps with the Benefit to Fedora section above. This section should be primarily about the User Experience, written in a way that does not assume deep technical knowledge. More detailed technical description should be left for the Benefit to Fedora section.
 +
 
 +
Describe what Users will see or notice, for example:
 +
  - Packages are compressed more efficiently, making downloads and upgrades faster by 10%.
 +
  - Kerberos tickets can be renewed automatically. Users will now have to authenticate less and become more productive. Credential management improvements mean a user can start their work day with a single sign on and not have to pause for reauthentication during their entire day.
 +
  - Libreoffice is one of the most commonly installed applications on Fedora and it is now available by default to help users "hit the ground running".
 +
- Green has been scientifically proven to be the most relaxing color. The move to a default background color of green with green text will result in Fedora users being the most relaxed users of any operating system.
