How to stop Android from adding a new app icon on my homescreen when I install a new app?

I don't need every app to have an icon on my homescreen, and usually end up manually deleting the icon after downloads. I just like to keep the important ones "at the ready," and access the rarely used ones though apps. How can I stop an icon from appearing on my homescreen when I download a new app?
1. Open the Google Play app.
2. Pull up the menu by tapping the "hamburger" icon (three horizontal lines) on the top left.
3. Tap "Settings"
4. Uncheck the box beside "Add icon to home screen."
