A shortcut usually is an icon on your homescreen to directly execute a defined action in some app.

A shortcut can lead to many things, including e.g.

  • files (documents) somewhere on your sd card
  • any action of some app (as long as the app provides such a shortcut)
  • bring you directly to a certain configuration screen

So basically a shortcut is helping you to access your favourite applications and actions faster.
