Which device are you using @Ozzy1
App shortcuts can typically be moved into folders or onto another Homescreen via long holding on the app icon and move it with your finger whilst still holding down.
A pop up box on my s8 on Nougat gives the option to remove shortcut.
To add > Some apps cannot be removed / uninstalled and some can.
Sometimes a device glitches which is normally helped by turning the device off and on and or clearing the apps data and cache.
