    Has anybody figured out how to add a shortcut to a single file on the home screen? I can add a shortcut to Astro and it will let me select a file but it wants to open the file instead of saving as an icon.

    Have you tried "Quickshortcutmaker" app? Free app that allows you to create shortcuts to discrete functions. Not sure if it will go to a single file, but worth a shot.

    Found my answer with the app "File Shortcut" . You just us the file manger to navigate to the file you want and long hold to bring up share. "File Shortcut" is added to the share options. Nice program as you can change the displayed name and icon. https://play.google.com/store/apps/...wxLDEwOSwiY29tLm5hZ29weS5maWxlLnNob3J0Y3V0Il0.
