How do I create shortcuts on Android 4.0?

Shortcuts are small icons on your Home Screen that let you load apps or other functions on your Cruz; they function much like the ones you see on a PC's desktop. You can set a shortcut to do anything from a opening a favorite app to linking to a specific Web page.

To add a shortcut, simply tap on the app panel (six squares) in the upper right of the home screen to display available apps. Tap hold (long press) your finger on any item to add it to the home screen. Under Apps, select any app to add a shortcut to the home screen. Under Widgets select Bookmark (to open a Web page) or Settings shortcut for available settings menus.
