Disable Add App Icon To Home Screen

The newer version of the play store on Android phones moved the check box from what I would call a ideal location to one that while makes sense is the last place I would check.

For my personal note and anyone that find this:

Home screen, press hold
Settings
Scroll to bottom, toggle 'Add icon to Home screen'

Nexus 6P: Turn on WiFi Automatically

I use a Nexus 6P as my day to day driver despite my phone having the early shutdown bug with the battery.  (Currently working on getting an RMA, come on google I am at 4wks now waiting for outbound shipment.)  I stumbled upon something that I just wanted to bookmark for use just in case I ever needed to find this again.  Instead of a regular bookmark I figured it would be better if I made a public posting and linked the original artical.

adb shell
settings put global wifi_wakeup_available 1
settings put global wifi_wakeup_enabled 1
