Applications and ApplicationsSaveMandatory

Applications lists the applications that the user has set as voluntary shortcuts in the Start Menu. ApplicationsSaveMandatory lists the applications that are set as mandatory shortcuts.

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

ApplicationsSaveMandatory lists applications that have the setting Start Menu: 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 ApplicationsSaveMandatory list and put in the Applications list instead. The reverse also happens with optional Start Menu shortcuts that have become mandatory.

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

Users can also opt to automatically set Start Menu shortcuts for all their applications. This is set with the INI file setting ShowAllApplication.
