how to move a favorite contact to a home page

With my old S5 I was able to send designated "contact's to my home page for easy access to call or text.  Can't seem to find how to do this on this new S9.  Any clues?

Troyounce, we understand the need to be able to use your device as desired. To add a favorite contact to your S9 homescreen, please follow these steps:

 

  1. From a Home screen, swipe up or down from the center of the display to access the apps screen.
    Note These instructions only apply to Standard mode and the default Home screen layout.
  2. Touch and hold an app.
  3. Drag the shortcut to the desired home screen then release. 

Please let us know if this helps.

This is not what troyounce asked.  He wanted to know how put a contact on his home page, not put an app there.
