      As well as that, there are shortcuts and there are shortcuts. E.g. Internet
      shortcuts are not the same as file shortcuts, which are not the same as
      MS-DOS shortcuts. And I think Office shortcuts are a different beast again.
      If you arrange by type, you'll probably get several groups because of this,
      too.
