It subsequently occurs to me that this would only apply to the user that
installed the application. which for a good percentage of use cases
would go unnoticed, but is not correct.  We could make it a part of the
initial profile creation instead, which probably makes more sense since
otherwise the shortcut would be dead until first run.
