If you are someone who travels a lot, then chances are that you use your mobile hotspot extensively. It can often be cumbersome to navigate your system menu in order to reach the Mobile tethering option.
How to get a shortcut for mobile tethering on your home screen
Step 1: You will first need to download the Activity Launcher app from the Play Store. Once installed, open the app by tapping on its icon.

Step 2: Tap on the ‘Search Icon’ in the top right corner.
Step 3: Search for ‘Hotspot’ and wait for the results to show up.
Step 4: Tap & Hold ‘com.android.settings.TetherSettings’.
Step 5: Now select ‘Create Shortcut’ when the sub-menu shows up.
Your shortcut will now be created on your smartphone’s home screen.
Note: You will have to grant Activity Launcher the permission to create shortcuts on your home screen.
