    For sharing the bookmark shortcut to the home screen in my android device, you will have to;
    • Tap and hold on to an empty spot on the home screen of your android device
    • Then you will have to tap on the option denoted as ‘Shortcut’
    • Now you will have to choose the option denoted as ‘Bookmarks’
    • Finally you will have to select a bookmark for adding it
    • This will add the bookmark to the Home Screen.
