Hi there

Whenever I install an app a new page gets created and the shortcut for app goes on that page, even though the three pages/screens already have a lot of space left.

Is there a setting somewhere which would stop adding the shortcut after creating a new screen.

Launcher and all settings are factory based with original Samsung firmware.

Thank you for your time.

Somewhere in between
Go to home settings and untick "Add apps to home screen". That way whenever you install a new app, no shortcut is created. If you still want to have a shortcut made but limited to adding to current screens instead of creating a new page, I have no idea on that.

I know how to disable, what I'm looking for is how to get shortcuts on current page.
