I couldn't figure out where the setting to stop adding icon to home screen when install any app. There is used to be a setting in Play Store under Play Store->Settings->Add icon to home screen.

I have no problem to disable that on my HTC M9+ (Android 5.0.2) and Mi 5S Plus(Android 7). All 3 phones are running the same version of Play Store, 8.4.19.V-all[0][FP]175058788

This article described the setting does not apply to HTC U11+ as it is running Sense as home screen management/launcher, so the Home setting is replaced by Sense Home settings, and there is no such configuration within the setting to disable adding icon to home screen. How do you disable "add icon to home screen" on Android Oreo?

Anyone has any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
