    Open the app that you downloaded and check the notifications to see if you can find a setting to remove the notification from the bar

    Sorry I believe I misread

    You have an icon on a home screen. Do a long press and move to the trash or uninstall the app

    Sorry, other that some notification setting I have no other suggestions. Are you able to scroll the notification bar down and clear them?

    Sounds like you have download icons in the notification bar. When you drag the bar down you should be able to click a Clear button to reset it.
