Yes - or the wrong TeXworks ;).
The upper folder apparently is part of the TeXLive installation, which
means that you seem to be using a TeXworks version provided by TeXLive
(and consequently customized to fit the TL folder scheme). The lower
folder would be OK if you used Tw as downloaded from Google Code
(without any modifications; as you indicated earlier).

So, either update your shortcuts to use the GC version of Tw, or move
shortcuts.ini to the folder
