  1. Intergrated app lock function. ASUS has one with the ZenUI.

    ASUS has one with their ZenUI. It allows for the locking of apps so a pattern or pin must be entered to launch them, which can be different from the phone's security. There are numerous third party apps which can do this, but they are ad supported.

    • Transparent icons above live wallpaper, for greater effect.

      I'd like an option to control transparency of app icons so that you can kinda see the live wallpaper underneath them, so that the whole theme blends together better.

      • 小米公交卡

        小米系统可以双击打卡公交卡等一些nfc的卡片,微软桌面占用了。一旦使用微软桌面为默认,打开公交卡门禁卡之类的很麻烦,这也是目前阻碍我使用该软件的一大问题,希望能及时解决,或者添加桌面双击的快捷方式!

        • 应用图标

          微软桌面无法读取当前主题(非系统自带主题,比如安装了新的主题)的图标并应用,希望以后能支持!

          • Photo app from Windows 10

            Would be great to import your photo app into android application to sync all photos between onedrive and have photo browser with built in functions like in windows photo app

                • 锁定桌面

                  当锁定桌面,不能编辑后,长按图标就没有快捷菜单了。这算bug还是本该如此,希望改进。
                  如nova等桌面是允许如此操作的

                      • it'd be great if there could be another way to organize apps in launcher other than alphabetical order, like based on utility, similar apps

                        organization of Apps based on utility. and then the dovks for each utility can be organized according to priority.
                        for example: one dock of mailing and productivity, one of social media, on for travel apps like Uber, Ola etc.
                        we can do the folder thing but it's hectic and not very pretty. but it would be great if microsoft could intuitively identify and sort them.

                                        • remove the search from the application panel

                                          Make it possible to remove the search from the application panel , and the applications themselves to organize as much as possible to fit them more in the panel, without unnecessary space. Vertical scrolling to make one list, and not , as now column sorting by name, very uncomfortable. I have not three hundred programs to not know them by name and look for.
