The internet shortcuts are favourites within Safari and so far as I know (and I have tried) the Safari favourites cannot be pasted outside the Safari screen (any shortcut on any page can be moved to the home screen.

I am using IOS 9.2

When you open safari at the bottom of the page hit the plus sign this will list recent sites visited then at the bottom of that page you will see a open book icon tsp on that and there will be your favorites

If you have a computer Windows or Mac using iCloud control panel you can sync your browser favorites

Hi Jtd1,

I am not sure if it is possible anymore but you can add a website to your home screen.

First open safari and navigate to the website you would like to add to your home screen. Once loaded, press the "share" button (one that looks like a square with an upwards arrow coming out of it) and you will see the option to "Add to Home Screen".

I hope this helps you. Let us know if it doesn't.
why not install google chrome. easier and easily to create shortcut.
