Bounty: 50

In my code I used to download apk, use it and then remove it. But after removing it, Apk is removed only from internal storage (internal storage/android/data//files/download) but it still is in My Files/Downloads folder.
How can I remove this shortcut/view from My Files/Downloads folder programmatically, or how to prevent saving it into this folder?

Downloading code:

final String destination = context.getExternalFilesDir(Environment.DIRECTORY_DOWNLOADS) + FORWARD_SLASH + TMP_APK_NAME;
final Uri uri = Uri.parse("file://" + destination);

//set downloadmanager
DownloadManager.Request request = new DownloadManager.Request(Uri.parse(url));

//set destination

// get download service and enqueue file
final DownloadManager manager = (DownloadManager) context.getSystemService(Context.DOWNLOAD_SERVICE);

Deletion code:

//Delete update file if exists
final File file = new File(destination);
if (file.exists()) {
