HOW TO: Add A Website Shortcut to your Homescreen

This is a response to an email received earlier today.  Even though the method’s quite simple, it’s something that can easily be missed because of the number of widget options and menus available.

Here goes:

  1. Open the Internet app
  2. Go to the page to you want to add
  3. Press Menu > Add Bookmark
  4. Give it a name and make sure the location is right
  5. Press Done
  6. Press the Home button to return to the homescreen
  7. Press “+” or long-press an empty space where you want to add the shortcut
  8. Select Shortcut from the Add to Home menu
  9. Select Bookmark
  10. Select the Bookmark you want to add
  11. Done! The shortcut should now be on your homescreen
