  1. for recent...feature to hide folders which I want to see in recents and which I don't want more UI and quick setting feature...more faster

    it should have a feature to set which folder's content to be shown and which folder's content not to be shown...more attractive and ui required
    apps are not able to create shortcuts on home...so fix it
    internal widgets and quick settings should be more attractive
    when we tap the phones menu button it shows old ui...require latest ui

    • Hide Recent, but not in Pullup

      I keep Calculator and calendar in the app screen pull up menu, and would like to prevent these (or other apps I remove) from showing back up when I open them manually. Using the hide feature removes even the pull up menu's apps.

          • Any way to disable showing recent photos?

            There should be an option to hide the recent photo thumbnails. You might have some recent personal photos that shouldn't be available for everyone peeping into your phone.

            • Scanning a bar code from your phone to the HDD hard drive for software installation.

              From your phone you can set up the command option to install new upgrades quicker and faster.

                • Allow user to disable showing clipboard entries in the recent view, since it also captures password manager details

                  Should be an option in the menu, not a delete per item basis-- or just show the most recent clipboard item.

                                • Tool bar recents

                                  If I do not have the recent page enabled I would also like for the recents that show on the toolbar/extended dock to not be displayed.

                                        • I like the "Recent" and "People" pages but would like to be able to edit what appears on them.

                                          The recent and people pages work well, but some things I prefer not to show on my main screen. Could use the feature to individually delete an entry.
