Add Home screen shortcuts to files on Xoom

I need to view a couple of Excel files stored Xoom tablet on a regular basis. How can I make a shortcut icon on my home screen that take me directly to the file and open it if I touch the shortcut?

Try adding a shortcut to a screen and choose Astro. You can have a shortcut to any file you want. Just set the default to whatever opens it if it asks.


  1. This method does not work for me with the Astro File Manager on the Xoom (though it does work with other devices). Any other ideas out there?

  2. ES File Explorer / ES Bookmark Manager
