    How to kill Download auto-shortcuts?

    I download an app and it automatically places a shortcut on a home screen. I don't want that; I want to go through my downloads at my leisure and decide whether I want shortcuts or not. I do a power downloading session (especially from google play on my pc), go to my phone and I've got shortcuts everywhere! :disappointed: I HAVE CONTROL ISSUES! LOL

    Hell hath no fury like a woman with control issues LOL :p

    I find that rather annoying too. I use "Desktop Visualizer" to make custom icons and shortcuts. You can even edit the names of the icons and shortcuts. :)

    Open the "Play Store" on your phone. Tap the "Menu" button, then "Settings" and uncheck the "Auto-Add to Home Screen" box ... problem solved. :icon_ banana:

    Quick scroll to end of Widgets

    So, of course I'm installing a kajillion new apps to play with on ICS. However, my widget list is getting way to long and I fear I'll develop "Carpal Tunnel Syndrome" from having to flick 20 or 30 times to scroll through to the end! :icon_ cry:I've looked around out there and haven't found any mention of this. Am I the only "terminally unique" one out there? Or just the laziest! :tongue:

    Well, thank you for the clarification! At least now I know why! :p

    btw, I'm surprised at you! None of your usual way cool 3rd party app suggestions for "this" dilemma (as opposed to my "other" dilemmas)? :blink:

    Oh, and I forgot to ask (since I'm in Widget "control" mode). :icon_rolleyes: Is there a way to get rid of Widgets I no longer need or never wanted in the first place? Hmmm...that might even go a long way to solving my "scroll" issue.

    There are some things even *I* haven't figured out ... I've only had ICS for about a week. Has anyone ever told you that you have control issues? :p

    When you open it (slide down) tap the "settings" icon at the top right. The only option is exactly what you're looking for, contact order. Hope this helps

    I think he means in the People app. I can't find a way to change order on that screen either.

    See that upon re-reading. I'll punish myself severely as soon as I'm done posting this :)

    Probably the same type of easter egg that each version of Android always has: Settings -> About phone -> tap Android version several times quickly.
