[Tutorial] Disabling Automatic Shortcut Creation Of Your New Installed App On Android

If you are new in Android, there is one annoying thing you want to stop first in your Android phone which creates shortcut automatically for every new installed app. It actually makes your home screen filled up with each and every downloaded apps. Even it creates further window for the home screen if it does not fit in the window size. And I bet you eventually will want it to be removed.


Here is an easy step for this in the below.

Step 1: Open your Google Play Store App.

Step 2: Tap on the Menu on the left upper corner.

Step 3: Go To Settings.


Step 4: Under “General” category, there is an option to “add icon to home screen“.


Step 5: Uncheck the box in the right and you are done.
