What im trying to do. I downloaded a document to my phone. It saved to my SD Card. now i want to be able to view the document. It is in the Download section of the SD Card but if i clear the list, how can i find this document again?
Your document is in the folder Download on your SD card.
Install the file manager 'ES File Explorer' and go to the folder Download and look for your document. ES will let you choose the viewer for your document.

Now to the creating of the shortcut using ES
Long press on the document's name ticks its check box, on the menu bar chose 'More' and on the pop up menu choose 'Add to desktop' ... voila, you'll find your shortcut on the home screen

If you want you can create also a shortcut of the folder Download on the home screen ... creating shortcuts of folders is the same procedure as of files.

Google Translate is to blame for my grammar
