    You can download an app from the Play Store to do that. My favourite is ES File Explorer.

    Thank you. I downloaded the app. I'm seeing my file. Now how do I make a shortcut to my desktop?

    Can I make a shortcut to a file on my SD card?-screenshot_2015-03-24-22-30-35.png

    I can press and hold the file which gives me the options email, delete, move or copy to another folder on my SD card, but no option to copy to my desktop or make a shortcut to it.

    Press & hold on it, tap on "more" bottom right and a menu will open. Select "add to desktop".
