    How to put a file on your homescreen

    Is it possible to put an excel file on one of my homescreens? I have figured out how to put the "files" folder on my homescreen but I want the actual file within the folder there. Is it possible?

    When I hold any of my home screens down, I do not have an option to add shortcut. I can only select Wallpapers, or add folder or Apps and widgets. Any other suggestions?

    Hey guys, this is easy to do with ES File Explorer.
    I use ES File Explorer and long press on the desired file. Scroll down to "shortcut" and it automatically puts it on your home screen

    Hope this helps
