  1. adaptive icon pack support

    Adaptive icon packs support.
    Now we can only use prepared shape icons, adaptive icon pack can be selected but nothing is applied. Additionally setting shape for icon pack would be useful. It's disabled when any icon pack is chosen.

  3. Apps & Folder names visibility independently

    I would like to control applications and folder names independently. For instance I want to show Folder name for each of the folders created, and for each app icon I would like to hide.

  5. Why do icons get smaller when changing to landscape orientation?

    Home screen icons should remain the same size whether in portrait or landscape orientation.

    and second, Set new icons to realtime and current date. Whenever I set a new Icon pack, the icons doesn't match the current time and date, Like Calendar.

  7. Shaped icons for third-party icon packs

    I'd appreciate if Microsoft Launcher supported the ability to apply shaped icon backgrounds (square, round, teardrop, etc) to third-party icon packs. They currently only work for default icons.

  11. Home screen icons should be independent from icon pack

    I have the option to manually choose an icon for a home screen shortcut, even from icon packs different than the one selected as default. However, this feature has a bug. Once the Launcher is restarted, those shortcuts will show up all white instead of displaying the selected icon. I have to make the given icon pack the default to get them to render properly again, but this will in turn mess up the icons in the app drawer.

  15. Small widgets

    I would like suggest an idea about widgets.
    If there is small widgets we users can place more widget in the home screen.

    And if you can add Microsoft navigation button in this launcher that is also good. And please add notification panel pull down button and custom button position too.

    This is great launcher. I am using this launcher in my two phones Huawei and Samsung.

  16. Modify the keyboard and notification bar Theme, for Galaxy Androids with square keys.

    Ideas- "use same themed icon settings for notification bar and keyboards. or at least allow for customization. Apply to page layouts for browser.
    Notification bar icons should be spaced equally apart in squares like they were on the Windows Phone, along with the keyboard."

  18. reset customized icon

    would be nice to be able to reset every icon to the default one cause if you change a single, no matter what icon pack you apply you need to change the individual icon one by one.

  20. Please "make app icons the same shape" apply to edited icons too. I use square and editing an icon turns it to the default rounded square 🥺

    I just want all the edited icons to have the same shape as the setting I chose.

    Even better: Allow us to choose what shape we want for edited icons. That way we can mix and match shapes for some added customization on our home screen.
