Now just open search and enter the same shortcut and hit Search at the bottom and the app will take the set action.

Note: The characters are case sensitive so you must enter the shortcut it in the same way as done in the settings. For instance if you have set G as a shortcut to open Google webpage, you must enter G and not g in the spotlight search.
