Yes. Meant exactly that. I created a shortcut on desktop for mintty.
Assigned it the key "ctrl+alt+M". I like my desktop to be uncluttered.
So after assigning the key, I moved the shortcut icon into my work
"/c/home/wrk". The hotkey stopped working. I then moved the icon back to
the desktop and it worked again. Now, all my hot-key-assigned shortcuts
sit in a folder "shortcuts" on the desktop and they all work.
