I have a non-rooted Samsung Galaxy A3 with Android 5. I have an app icon on the desktop for "My Files" app, but how is it possible to create a shortcut for SD card\books\ on the desktop?

My bad, in fact the app My Files has this option already:

It's just a matter of your file manager allowing you to create shortcut to a folder.

Seems that the default file manager of Samsung(My Files) doesn't provide that feature.

Just go for another file manager such as MK Explorer. In the options next to a folder name, you can find create shortcut. That will do the job.

This shortcut will persist even if you uninstall the file manager that created it.
