        • Remove recent activity

          Allow removing of specific items from the recent view. E.g., SwiftKey allows to remove items from the clipboard by swyping

            • Change - close all animation in multitasking with the same used to Go back from MS launcher setings

              When I use "close all" in multitasking and all active windows is closed, a screen with empty multitasking icon appears and that's looks bad and anoying. In the same time when I use back button to go back from MS launcher settings to home screen, animation is a smooth and having nice looking style. Just use same stile or integrate default one from Google.

                    • Configure apps to exclude from clipboard monitor

                      There are some apps that should not be monitored from a recent clipboard perspective. For example, a password app like lastpass or 1password. It would be great if we could specifically exclude apps from being monitored or to ignore.

                      • Add an option to REVERSE list the RECENT list that way it'll be easy to operate using one hand.

                        On the RECENT list page its difficult to access the most recent option with one hand operation as it appears on the top of the page. So if you reverse the list it'll be easy to access that.

                                • The recent apps section should be larger. I need it at least containing 10 - 15 recent apps.

                                  The recent apps section should be larger and able to contain more than 4 recent apps. Please make it 3 or 4 rows, so more apps will appear there.

                                  • Allow us to limit focused inbox emails in the recent activity widget.

                                    Right now, it shows all incoming emails and can get very cluttered. Please allow us to limit this to only focused inbox items.

                                    • It would be nice to see all of my emails from from all of my accounts show up under the recent activities card.

                                      The recent activities card only shows emails from the one account I am signed into the launcher with. I imagine that this feature would be similar to the Calendar card, which has the ability to show all of my appointments over all of my accounts.

                                      • It would be nice to see group SMS messages show up in the Recent Activities card.

                                        I already see SMS messages from single recipients. But I would imagine it would look the same but only for group SMS messages
