 The welcome panel has a few helpful links to get started in configuring
 your new WordPress.  That being said one of the more complicated steps for
 new users is figuring our how to set their homepage to a static page.  I
 think a quick link here will feel natural and help users in solving this

 I've posted the current view and my proposed solution below.  I'm simply
 adding the text "Setup your homepage" to the Welcome Panel and linking it
 to ''wp-admin/options-reading.php''.

 I've considered adding a fourth link to the right hand column of the
 welcome panel but I don't think it makes a sense to limit or add links for
 visual balance in a panel that doesn't have true alignment anyways.  The
 far left column doesn't align.

 Adding a fourth link in the middle column looks good to me.
