The Quick Start widget has links for creating new assets or editing existing ones. The left portion of the Quick Start widget lists content types that you use often. Clicking one of the content types opens a blank content edit page for that content type. The right portion of the Quick Start widget lists existing assets. Clicking an asset opens it in the content edit page.
