Google Photos has a new shortcut that makes finding your screenshots less of a headache. The app’s latest version on Android now lets you open the screenshot folder directly from your phone’s home screen.

The app now shows a shortcut when you long-press its icon on your home screen, as spotted by 9to5Google (opens in new tab). The new update is part of Google’s efforts to make the app much easier to navigate than it was during its early days.
