Command shortcuts are highlighted when searched

Command shortcuts take seconds to set up and give users a quick way to execute commands without first opening the CommandBar. Sometimes, users don't understand how shortcuts work, so they'll try searching for a command by its shortcut.

To let them know how shortcuts work, we'll now show a tooltip when a user searches for a command by keyboard shortcut.

There's no "right" way to use a keyboard shortcut though; if your users prefer to start every command with command/ctrl+k and then searching by shortcut, they can do that too :) Searching for a keyboard shortcut will now always show the command whose shortcut matches the query at the top of the results list.

How can I turn this on? 🛠

If you don't already use shortcuts, all you need is to add a shortcut to one of your commands!
