By default, Show all applications is bond to Super+A in GNOME desktop. And cannot be changed to Super L or Super R since it conflicts with Overview. To force GNOME to open applications menu with Super, there is an extension called Show Applications Instead Of Workspaces.

Show all applications
Default key binding of Show all applications


To install the extension, turn it to ON in GNOME Extensions:

Extension page

The extension works out of the box, no need to change the key bindings in Settings after the installation.
