How can I add a specific Google Document to my home screen?

I have a Nexus 6 Android phone that is up-to-date.

The page referenced below appears to have a potential solution to this issue but I have not been able to see choice they are trying to illustrate at top of that page.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

The steps are correctly shown in all pages/pics. It says to use the 3 dotted menu button, and you HAVE TO SCROLL DOWN, the option will be down there.

Using the Drive app on your phone, locate the file you want to put on your home screen and long press on that file, that should bring up the menu that you can scroll down and see the Add to Home screen link.

Cheers!

Edit: You have to do it from the Drive app. I just tried it in Sheets and Docs and the 3 dots or the long press won't have the option to add to home screen. Quirky.
