I have a Motorola 5gs Plus phone with Android 8.1.

I'm trying to add a chortcut on the home screen to a document.

I have read several posts that supposedly describe the process. In addition, some posts recommend installing and using ES File Explorer. I've tried all of these suggstions but none work.

All methods have a common thread....
-navigate to the desired file
-long press the file
-open options menu
-click add shortcut
(the choices vary slightly from method to method)

When I follow these instructions, I don't see an option that says "add shortcut"

For example the native Android choices are:
-Open with
-Select all
-Copy to...
-Move to...

Can anyone direct me to a method that works?
