  1. It would be fantastic if a feature for changing the size and thickness of the font would be added.

    Perhaps an option in the app's settings where you can chose between different font styles for the launcher, which would also include an option for higher or lower letter thickness. This change should also have effect on the launcher's widgets. It would be much appreciated. Thank you.

  2. dual screen is challenging

    I am using an LG G8X dual screen device. Given the software enhancements of the Surface Duo, you would think this browser would work better on a two screen device. if it did I would be more apt to use the microsoft integrations.

  3. Unable to change spacing between items in list, used to be much closer

    Used to be able to see my shopping list all on one screen but since last release, blank line put between each so now need to scroll up and down to find things. Needs to be configurable.

  6. Lockscreen personalization

    Changing content on the lockscreen would be amazing. Moving the clock to the bottom, making it bigger/smaller/ digital/analog? No problem, just do it!

  7. Customizeable search bar in Feed/Glance

    Please give us option for search bar placement in Feed/Glance screen, like remove it or arrange it however we like (just like other widget). Now it's hidden above our profile picture which is not efficient.
    It also make the profile pic too close to Android status bar (it doesn't have top margin/padding) which is weird, since if you pull down the Feed screen, the search bar has top margin/padding.

  9. "Update" option on Desktop App Icon

    when anyone presses down on their desktop apps and options arise, such as uninstall etc...: ADD AN UPDATE OPTION.

    If you play it right, Microsoft Launcher could be like Google Playstore.

  12. Themes

    I would love to see a theme feature. Either a support for the feature already in place for samsung phones, or a more dynamic and better supported version specific for users of the MS Launcher like myself.

  14. Different Icon Shapes for Home and Dock Icons

    I do wish we could have different icon shape for the dock icons and home screen icons. We already can have different icon sizes for these 2 areas, why can't the shape be differentiated too? I want my Home Screen Icon be Squircle, but dock icons original, please..
     
    If possible, I want some of my home screen icon Squircle, some others be their original too. I can manage that by manually changing the icon after I set the icon shape to be Squicle. But once the launcher rebooted, I switch back to uniform Squircle. I wish this is possible but if…

  15. Smaller icon label text without bold.

    The icon label text is too big and bold. Even when selecting "small".

  16. Add a custom icon pack

    I've been using microsoft launcher for nearly 2 years now. I would like mirocsoft to build a custom icon pack for users. It will really enhance the UI considering it's 90% well polished. You can get back to me at my given email address. Cheers!!

  17. You can't slide the desktop while moving ICONS, but it's even more convenient if you can slide the desktop while moving ICONS.

  19. make the folder icon the same size as apps

    The folder icon is larger than the app icons on home screen. That doesn't give the best looking home screen. Please make the folder icon size the same as the app icon size.

  20. On/Off shades in fonts and icons

    I have a line icon pack and I just saw that icons have a default shade like app names, which makes it work better with some wallpapers and worse in other ones, I'd love this to be a customizable feature.
