How to stop an icon from appearing on home screen with every app download?

Is there a way to stop an Android phone from installing a new shortcut icon on the home screen every single time I install an app from the Play store?
1. Go to the Google Play Store (use the app).

2. Click on the little “hamburger” on the top left of the screen to open the menu.

3. Click on “settings.”

4. In the “General” section on the resulting screen, look for “add icon to home screen” and uncheck the box beside it.
