Making Your Own Nook Shortcut on Your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK

By Corey Sandler

You can even make your own shortcut from the Home screen on your Galaxy Tab S2 NOOK to any NOOK book or other content you get through the store. Here’s how to do it, and it’s not quite as difficult as it may sound:

  1. From any Home screen, pinch the screen and then tap Widgets.

  2. Swipe your way through the available widgets, and when you locate it tap NOOK Widgets.

  3. Touch and hold the widget called NOOK Shortcut to Book to place it on a Home screen.

    When it’s on a Home screen, you can move it about on that page or other secondary Home screens and place it there.

  4. Scroll through your library and find the content for which you want to create a shortcut.

    Not all content is likely to fit on one screen; tap More at the bottom of your library list to see additional entries.

  5. When you find the item for the shortcut, touch it.

    A flexible box appears around the shortcut; you can make this box smaller or larger by touching one of the sides and pushing it in or out.

  6. Tap outside the shortcut to complete the process.

    Add the NOOK shortcut to your Home screen to quickly jump to the last place you were reading something (an eBook, for example) that you got from the NOOK Store.

You can create as many NOOK shortcuts as you can fit on your Home screen panels. And you can delete a shortcut: Press and hold a shortcut until it pulses; then drag it to the Trash icon; deleting a shortcut does not delete the content itself.
