 +====== Shortcuts ======
 +The default shortcuts on your desktop give you quick access to your media files (e.g. documents, photos, music, videos) that are stored on the network drive. Additionally,​ the shortcut for the applications folder makes it easy to find programs that currently do not have a shortcut and configure the settings. Last but not least, the recycle bin, which behaves just like your recycle bin on the computer.
  
 +To add more shortcuts, open the applications folder and simply drag the application to the desktop. The same method works also with your media files and folders. To create a shortcut to a certain file, simply drag the file or the folder to your desktop.
