    How to prevent Android Play Market on Sony Xperia V from adding shortcuts to apps?

    Whenever I download an app from Android Play Market using my Sony Xperia V, I can find a shortcut along with the app on the home screen. I need to prevent this as it is quite annoying sometimes. What should I do for that?

    First of all, get into the ‘Market’ app on your phone. Find out ‘Settings’ from the options listed inside it. Once you locate that option, make a single tap on it. This will bring up another set of options on the screen. Go through that list of options and locate the ‘Auto-add Shortcuts’ option. You can view a check box next to it with a tick mark. Tap on that option until you can erase the tick mark from that box.

    Go to Play Store on menu page of your device.then tap on it to open after that when it fully opened tap on Menu key,a pop up will be appeared.Under that will find different options.
    You need to select & Tap Settings,again a pop up will appear under that drag to below & find an option as Auto-add shortcuts. Near by the option a check box appear you need to tap on it & once done mark will be removed.It means you have disabled the Auto Add Shortcuts.
