    Open the app drawer, open Widget tab, all of the available shortcuts are in there together with the widgets.

    If it doesn't have what you're looking for you need to download an app to add that functionality. ES File Explorer can have a shortcut to any files in your internal storage for example.

    Install a third party launcher like Nova and you can very easily.
