  1. Open hidden apps with finger print

    You can now set a password to open the hidden apps screen. Using finger print would be much faster and easier.

  3. You could also include app lock in this launcher

    Every launcher now comes with a app lock. In Microsoft launcher we have a space to hide apps which is a great feature. But in order to protect our privacy and fast access of apps , applock feature will be very helpful.

  6. Native lock function at Launcher's options.

    All "hidden apps" appearing on gestures section -.-
    Short-term solution, make 'em visible only on their due page, nowhere else.

  8. hidden apps

    Hidden apps are cumbersome to achieve, entering the pin too far up the display. Please place further down the line

  10. Please let launcher have a capability than can use as a message alert tone when receiving message by saying "(x) messages received from (y)

    let Cortana announce when a message is received.ON automatically when connected to bluetooth,ON anytime, read the content when driving,.launcher hidden apps must be protected with password different from screen lock password.there should also hidden photos and videos where its location can be manually located or default in external SD card to avoid internal memory shortage.

  15. ** Major Bug ** Enabled App Twin on Huawei P20 Pro and now Launcher won't run

    I wanted to run two versions of WhatsApp. I enabled App Twin on my Huawei P20 Pro. I then wished to "hide" one instance. I found that this can't be done as it hides both. I removed Whatsapp from Hidden Apps - but now Microsoft Launcher keeps vanishing. I get a message saying it's caused a serious error and asks me to uninstall it. No matter how many times I reboot or reinstall it.

  19. Option to hide apps from the app drawer only vs. hiding them globally

    Right now hidden apps will disappear from both the app drawer and the homescreen.
    An option for a "softer" hide, i.e. apps will be hidden from the drawer, but remain on the homescreen, would be nice for keeping everything clean. When I've placed an app on the homescreen, I usually don't need to access it from the app drawer anymore.
    A toggle for global/drawer-only would be nice
