    Press on the icon you don't want, hold it until it "lifts" from the screen, a trash can will popup, drag it there.

    Also, to keep new apps from appearing on your home screens, go to the market and tap the menu key (4 lines on it) and go to Settings. There is a checkbox for adding to homescreen. Uncheck and no more automatic shortcuts.
