Yes. File Short cut App will help you to create short cut for files.

It is an app to create a shortcut to open the file.
You can choose any files such as images, videos, or PDF.
- You need a separate application that corresponds to the format so you can open the file.
For example, PDF files can not be opened without PDF readers such as Adobe Reader.

mp3, mp4, jpg, png, gif, html, pdf, txt, doc, xls, ppt
