    can I put a shortcut to a pdf or other file on my desktop?

    Internet bookmarks, depending on the browser it may be different, but similar. Using the stock browser open up the bookmarks page. Long press on a bookmark and when the menu pops up select "Add shortcut to home".

    For individual files, you will need a (free) file manager app like ES File Explorer. Find the file or folder to shortcut to, long press and choose "Shortcut"

    Not sure with the stock interface but I use Go Launcher Ex (free) which allows a lot of different items to be added to your desktop, also a world of other improvements to the stock launcher. Make sure you also down the laucher changer for froyo (works with honeycomb too)

    Never got to check into these other solutions as Filemanager HD has it built in.

    Long press desktop...
    Look where you have Widgets, Wallpaprers and Apps and all that...
    The more option. Under the more options there was a filemanager HD icon. Its a shortcut creator Tool!

    There are other utilities for apps I have downloaded that I was not even aware of.

    Very impressive.
