You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

  1. Animate return to home

    Animation when swiping between home screens is good, but return to first home screen when pressing the home button is immediate and unanimated. Doesn't feel slick or finished like the rest of the experience.

            • Microsoft Launcher needs the ability to customize icons similar to Nova Launcher.

              Similar to customizing/ changing the name on apps, we need the ability to customize the icons themselves and choose images from our library

                          • 重命名时不要遮挡过长的名字

                            重命名时名字长的话就隐藏超出的部分了,能不能设置为显示全称

                            • Link to install/search app in app store on end of result. Just like on Windows Phone.

                              While searching in app list, I was really used to click on search in market place button that lead me to search result for given string. The button is very logical there as you wanted this app, you know it's name you just happened not to have it.

                                        • Develop an app in layman's terms

                                          The most frustrating issue I have ever run across from anyone I have ever spoke to when it comes to using, purchasing, and/ or recommending products is that for the average user they are not written in a way that they can easily be understood.
                                          If Microsoft wanted to beat the the competition hands down they would come up with not only apps but software that was written in step by step instructions without messy technical terms. They would be an overnight success.
