The latest version of the popular Android launcher Action Launcher includes a nifty looking new feature, desktop shortcuts. It’s based on the new long-press user interface that Google has introduced in the Android P beta. With the new Action Launcher v37, when you long press on a blank spot on the screen, you will bring up the new desktop shortcuts menu. You can customize those shortcuts in the menu so you can get faster access to phone features like your current battery usage or if you want to lock or unlock your desktop.
