I know, I always run into the same confusion. When it pops up saying "hey,
an app registered a new global shortcut"  it doesn't even say what shortcut
it is, to even make the notification useful. In my mind, it seems like one
of those cases similar to how a messagebox can be overused, stating or
asking something that the user does not even care/need to know about, and it
just adds confusion.
