How To Add Website Shortcuts to RIM's PlayBook Home Screen

It's easy to add website shortcuts to your PlayBook home screen.

It's easy to add a favorites shortcut for websites on your RIM PlayBook's home screen.

From the PlayBook home screen tap on the Browser icon.

Tap on the Address Bar and type in the site you want to bookmark.

Then, tap on the bookmarks icon located on the top left of the browser and tap on Add to Home Screen.

From the bottom bezel swipe up on the screen and close out of the browser.

Then on the home screen you'll see the website icon you just created.

Now move the website icon to the Favorites tab.

This makes it easy to find all of your favorite sites in one place for easier use.
