New ToTD telling user ability to switch UI

As per tdf#117463 we now have a dialog for picking UI. Heiko has implemented also a link to tell user and give them a link to show the dialog from Tips of The Day. Unfortunately the action link text in ToTD should be changed to be something to less technical. Some of my idea:

"Change user interface"
"Change LibreOffice interface"

The tooltip also need to be changed. User does not need to know what kind of command they will execute. This "Execute the command .uno:ToolbarModeUI" seems likely will scary user. Some of my suggestion
"Change user interface from a range of choice"
"Run user interface changer dialog"

Comment 1 Heiko Tietze 2020-10-20 07:19:16 UTC
With the latest iteration [1] we just show the UNO command as tooltip because the used linkbutton takes the URI (typically http://...) as tooltip. Before that we had the generic tooltip "Execute the command %COMMAND" since UNO commands can be added to other tips as well. 
Second part of the discussion should be the shown label. It's right now "Run this action now...", also a generic string for all tips.

If we decide to use an individual tooltip per tip-of-the-day it needs to be stored with the tip itself making it far more complex than today, which is <text, uri, image>.

From bug 117463 comment 58:

> given that the function added there is a very generic one (allowing to run

Please never add duplicating strings until it's absolutely necessary. UNO commands already have textual information. Re-ising them as tooltips and/or link text is fine.

Note that the URL controls allow settings tooltips independently of the URLs.
