Shortcut - naaah
Funny, I just researched this this morning. It's a such a basic thing and yet doesn't appear to be there, to my knowledge.
So here is my work around, (long answer) but only Step 1. needed.
Step 1. go to the Market, and get Linda File Manager, navigate to your file through the file manager and long press on it. It offers many options, one of which, drops a shortcut on your home page.
Step 2. The first time you use the shortcut, you may be asked which program to use to open the file. If you have more than one choice, try them all before you make it permanent by hooking off the little box.
Step 3. If you hooked off the little box by mistake, go to your tablet's settings, application manager, long press the application you chose and reset defaults. That will clear the file association.
Hope this helps

I know you can get ashortcut to a web site but how can I produce a direct link to an individual file!
