  1. Shutters like Action Launcher

    Action Launcher's shutters for app folders is a fantastic way to interact with the home screen. It is the primary feature that kiwis me from switching to Microsoft Launcher.

    • Adding apps to a folder should support search

      Right now, the add apps dialog from the folder's triple dot menu requires through every installed app on my phone in no particularly useful sort order and with no search or quick navigation. Please simplify this process with a jump list or a search filter.

          • open the first app of the folder by tapping and open the folder by swiping

            yeah it's a rip of from nova, but it's very practical, if you have one app of a folder you use more frequently than the rest

            • Check apps in current folder

              When adding applications to the currently opened folder, show a checkmark for applications already present in that folder.

              • Choose bitmap as folder icon

                I have custom PNG folder icons I've used for years in Nova Launcher. That's one of the only things keeping me from using Microsoft Launcher. I'd like to be able to use them instead of built in icons.

                • Folder in folder

                  hello
                  my idea is about creating a new folder in an existing folder like in windows that you can create a new folder and make a new folder inside it
                  and add the ability to create folders in app drawer too
                  Best Regards

                  • Ability to “drag to add item” into an exist app folder in app drawer.

                    We can only “drag to add item" into folders in home screen and dock presently. It would be nice to bring this function.

                      • folder icons bigger to fill up folder with little padding

                        the icons when added to a folder as tiny. I have the home at 4x4 but the icons are still tiny, need to be able to adjust then icon size in folders separate from home screen
                        .

                              • Line folders

                                So instead of a circle folder, there's a line folder like on Nova Launcher where the first app is dominant and other apps are behind. Tap like you would on reg apps and the dominant app will open. Quick tap and the folder will open giving you access to all apps.

                                • Lett us scale our folders on the home screen.

                                  I prefer having 4 apps across when I open a folder on my homescreen. 5 is good too. I rather dislike only 3 across.

                                  • add a lock down icons or folders. they tend to move around then I can't locate where they are? Set up groups, lock them in place

                                    i arrange apps in logical groups (folders) and lock them in place so folders and icons don't accidentally get moved

                                      • Move/copy folders between home screen and app list

                                        I create a folder in my home screen which takes a bit to comb through all my apps to not miss any for the category i have created with the folder... Then I decide to play with the idea of uncluttering my home screen by moving the folder to my app drawer to see how I like it.... But no can do....

                                        So any organizational idea is more of a commitment than an experiment. As some of the best ideas come form having the freedom to play, this is my suggestion :-)

                                          希望有自己的UI库,有些图标在微软桌面上面看着很丑,有些还不能跟随系统,只能使用默认的应用图标,希望可以选择使用微软的图标,希望这个图标有科技感2.,希望可以调节文件夹缩略图一次显示几个APP,只有4个太少了,希望支持9个
