Recently I have observed some of the apps (Photo editors) asking for permissions like 'creating bookmarks' at the time of installation from google play.

How can I disable a particular application from creating a bookmark on the home screen, like in disabling notifications on per app basis.

Thanks in advance


The Play Store does have an option in its central settings for controlling whether shortcuts on your home screen are automatically created for apps when you install them:

Play Store settings

You can get here by opening the Play Store, pressing the Menu button on your phone (or the "three dots" menu icon if you don't have a hardware menu button) and select Settings, you should then see the "Auto-add widgets" setting that you can enable or disable.
