How to Add Shortcuts on a Firestick

This page shows how to add shortcuts for any apps you frequently use to the shortcut bar (outlined in green) on the main screen of your Firestick.

1. Starting on the main screen, scroll to Apps. Apps is shown in the green circle in the photo below.

2. You may need to click on My Apps to see all of the apps on your Firestick.

3. Arrow to the app you want to add to the shortcuts, in this case, Kodi. Don’t click it, instead press the menu button on your Firestick remote (three horizontal lines).

4. An options menu will pop up on the right side of the screen. Click “Move to front” to add the app to the shortcut bar.

5. Now the app you selected will appear in the shortcut bar on the main screen of your Firestick. The shortcut bar has space for 6 apps so you can repeat this process to add any 6 apps you want shortcuts to.

The apps you can use for streaming movies and tv shows that you can add to the shortcut bar are FilmPlus, Bee TV and Kodi.

There’s an app for live sports called SportsFire and one for live tv called Streamfire. The icons for those are shown below.
