  2. Add, remove, or re-order quick links as you see fit

NOTE: If you’d for your link to download a document (such as PDF), tick [Is this a download] checkbox. This will cause the web part to download a given file instead of opening it in the browser.

You can un-target (show links to everyone) by deleting filter criteria you set in step 2.
