    Document shortcut

    Hi, I have several documents I access frequently. Is it possible to create homescreen shortcuts to these documents so that they open in Polaris or Docs To Go?

    Thanks

    Some file managers will allow this. I use ES File Explorer (and I also believe File Expert works too) and if you long press on a word document (or any file) it will give you a menu with cut, copy, etc. Choose Shortcut and it will dump it on your home screen. Go to the home screen, tap on it and VOILA!

    Is the document you are shortcutting to on removable media? I know there is an issue with shortcuts created from removable media with ES and Android 3.2. The developer is aware is working on it.
