  3. You can also add new shortcuts by clicking on Add shortcut and entering the name and path for the new shortcut. For example, if you frequently add pages enter the NAME Add page and PATH “node/add/page”. Click Save.

The default shortcut set is customised by the site maintainer but each user can create and customise his/her own set via the user account (Shortcut tab). The site maintainer also has the option to create different shortcut sets for different user groups.
