Hello there jbecksterau!
Thanks for joining!
Can you long press on the icon or widget and drag it to the trash can that should appear when you long press on it?
What device do you have?
Again, welcome to AF!!

Welcome to the forums, jbecksterau!

In addition to the advice above, you will definitely want to open the Play market, go to Settings and UN-CHECK the "auto-add widgets" option. That will keep Play from putting icons in some available spot on your home screens with every installation.
