    How do you create a shortcut to a photo on the home screen? I Googled it and followed the steps on several different how-tos that I found; none of them worked. They all say, "click the 'Add Shortcut To' button". There IS NO "Add Shortcut To" option in the menu when I click on the ellipsis. I thought something like this would be simple to do; WTF. Android should be much easier and intuitive to use than this. Does anybody know how to do this that doesn't then require an Internet connection to pull up the photo (it's saved on my phone)?

    ok i do not have your phone, but on my z fold 3, i can't add photos to my home screen. there are photo widgets on the play store that will add photos to the homescreen....not sure if it is the same on moto phones.

    I was able to use a suggestion from another user to create the shortcut using a File Manager called Explorer, thanks.
