    • HOME SCREEN LAYOUT LOCK

      please allow us to lock the home screen layout of apps, so that apps don't get distorted or layout doesn't get messed up by unintended swipes and touches.

      • Allow Outlook Calendar to show detailed status

        As in Windows 10 mobile you would allow Outlook Calendar to show detailed status of upcoming events on the Lock and Home screens. This would remind you of upcoming appointments at a glance

        • Lock screen & Bing image

          This gives you the choice of adding Bing image to the lock screen. The options then under settings will have an added option: add image to
          1. Home screen
          2. Lock screen
          3. Home and Lock screen

          Thanks

          • easily unlock home screen

            I don't like my icons to move by mistake. So I lock the screen using the option (who is not easy to found). My issue, is when I want to add a new icons, i need to unlock (not easy), then add the icon, then lock again the screen (not easy). I would appreciate that the lock/unlock switxh to be in the 1st page of the config. My dream is: "unlock the screens for 5mins", so after 5 minutes the system lock the screen alone ... ;-)

            thank in advance if you consider it.

            • Bing Bilder meiner Region.

              Ich will gerne die Bing Bilder meiner Region Deutschland haben und nicht die Amerikanische. Jede andere App auf Windows Phone hat das hin bekommen. Das sollte doch dann für euch kein Problem sein.

                • homescreen

                  I think pop up menu of icons in gone screen should work in the locked home screen mode.

                  • When i press finger on the home screen, which is locked, i am still able to see broken windows and menu at the bottom.

                    When I press the home screen which is locked, i am still able to see broken windows and menu at the bottom. This should be avoided as the very idea of locking the home screen is lost.

                    • Landscape mode home screen

                      Please add option for change in orientation of the home screen. We should have option if we want the home screen to change orientation automatically.

                      • app quick tasks should be displayed while long tapping on any app icon at home screen even after locking the home screen.

                        Currently when Home Screen is locked it disables all the actions being performed at long tapping any app icon.
                        Ideally it should work this way
                        1. Disable all the moving, removing, renaming, change icon activities of app icons from the popup list.
                        2. It should still support the quick actions like take photos, new email, play music etc.

                                  Have a third option to apply the Bing wallpapers to just the lock screen, it's an option that didn't need to go away.

                                      • Spotlight on lockscreen

                                        Allow setting of Windows Spotlight image as lockscreen independent of home screen Bing image. So the experience is consistent across my Microsoft devices
