Actually, it’s a common situation there is a new icon added on your screen after you installed a new app. But it doesn’t always come out. Sure it can come in handy, but it also can be pretty annoying. Now, let’s me told you how to disable it on the Android devices.
Disabling the auto-add widgets (or shortcuts) feature is easy.
- Launch the Google Play Store on your Android device.
- Tap on Menu and then Settings.
- Uncheck the box next to “auto-add widgets.”
Easy enough. Now, you can install apps, be it from the Google Play Web site, or through the Play Store app on the device itself and not have to worry about your home screen(s) being cluttered up with your latest downloads. If you love auto add shortcut on screen, you can go back into Settings in the Play Store and turn it back on. Will I told you actually I read this article from CNet? Obviously NO!
