Bug Description

Currently launcher allows opening applications with Meta+# shortcuts, but there's no way to access quicklists with keyboard.
Suggest to show them by adding Shift key to the corresponding shortcuts, i.e.

Show quicklists on Meta+Shift+# and Meta+Shift+a/s/f

-----------------------------------------
Desired Solution:

- Add "SUPER+ALT+[number or letter]" keyboard shortcuta to open Launcher quicklists

- These shortcuts *should not8 be added to the 'Keyboard Shortcut overlay'

Actually, you can reach quicklists with the keyboard as follows:

1) Press Alt+F1. This will give focus to the launcher.
2) Use arrows to navigate between icons and into their quicklists.

I'm marking the bug as invalid, as it's a feature request. As shown above, keyboard navigation into quicklists is already possible.

Approving this change request, because even though it is a minor feature it does not have any negative user experience impact, and could be helpful for power users.
