    Not sure to really understand what you want. I mean: if you don't want any application shortcut on your homescreen, just... don't put any yourself?

    No, there is no option that would prevent you from placing an app shortcut on the homescreen. But you can remove shortcuts (and app folders, and widgets) from your homescreen by long-pressing the shortcut you want to remove, and dragging them to the "Remove" zone at the top of the screen. You can also prevent Google Play from automatically creating app shortcuts on the homescreen in the Play Store options. That way, you will be able to keep your homescreen as clean and clear as possible.

    After installation of an app by default is created a shortcut on home screen. This option in is gone from Google play store in update 8.0 amd transferred in launcher settings. No such option is available in oneplus launcher!

    Yes, After the Oreo update there is no option of disabling the creation of app shortcut on installing. Need to fix it.
