        • grid visible

          When moving an icon, the grid should be visible in some way to aid in placement.

          Thank you!

                • 1.当小部件的尺寸调整到最大时,与快捷栏的距离拉近些,空隙太大了影响观感;
                  2.切换页面时,指示条反应快些,争取做到与页面切换同步!

                      • Resize cards

                        When using the home screen as default screen, it would be good to have cards spanned half way across the screen like windows phone

                        • calendar

                          i don't know if it's a bug or a missing feature, but the calendar page should allow you to see your "all day" events without having to click on the "there's an all day event". it's a little annoying, i want to see my events as soon as I open the page

                          • Dock Lock...lock down icons in the dock so they don't get moved accidentally. same could be done for home screens, one or any.

                            allow the user to lock icon dragging on the dock and home screens of their choice. this would prevent accidental changes, particularly with dock icons being dragged off the dock.

                            • After adding apps to folder

                              So, when we add an app to a folder it is moved to the specified folder. That's good. If I install a new app, or I have forgotten to move an app to the specified folder it is still available to be added from the list of apps. That runs the risk of duplicate apps in folders. I know. Dummy me added two app icons for every app in a folder when I added one forgotten icon... Is there any way to eliminate access to the list of moved apps after they have been moved to a folder?

                                it's good when we can send images from file explorer to PC it's only show in recent history panel or cannot send particular images, we cannot choose require images to continue on PC or send it to PC. it's better to improvement in sending option so we can send images from anywhere to my link PC from the mobile I hope you wheel consider my ideas. and thanks for building this nice application.

                                • car mode

                                  Now that Cortana can natively read SMS messages, can there be a mode where text messages are automatically read (or with prompt) with an option to reply?
                                  it would be great if it could be activated by a widget that brings up a reduced interface or alternate home screen.

                                  thanks - mikemmer@microsoft.com

                                      • Multiple dock screens, sliding, infinite scrolling

                                        I would like to see the dock allowed to have multiple pages to I can add 14 or 21 or 70....icons. 7 icons max per dock page is enough with the dock being able to scroll to infinite. To be more reasonable, if there were 5 dock pages, we could add at the most 35 apps. Enough for most, you think.?

                                        • can you guys please allow us to change the text color on the home screen

                                          I love the app but sometimes the text color conflicts with my background. if we could change the font color for the entire device that would be amazing
