Opps nevermind. Turned off auto add widgets in the play store. Weird feature. If anyone else is looking to do this now you know how.

Yeah I had been trying to do that as well and I stumbled upon that setting. That's such a weird location for that setting, IMO

Thanks for this. I spent at least a half hour last night trying to figure out if I could turn it off and then just gave up.
