QuickLaunch and QuickLaunchMandatory

QuickLaunch lists the applications that the user has set as voluntary Quick Launch shortcuts. QuickLaunchMandatory lists the applications that are set as mandatory shortcuts.

These settings are part of the Workspace Control mechanism for handling QuickLaunch shortcuts that change from optional to mandatory and vice versa.

QuickLaunchSaveMandatory lists applications that have the setting QuickLaunch: Set mandatory shortcut in the Workspace Control Console (on the application's General tab under Automatic shortcuts). At the start of a user session, Workspace Control checks whether each application in this list still has that setting. If not, the application is removed from the QuickLaunchSaveMandatory list and put in the QuickLaunch list instead. The reverse also happens with optional QuickLaunch shortcuts that have become mandatory.

There is not much point in changing these lists manually unless you also change the setting in the Console.
