  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  9. Wire support

    Wire is currently the go-to OOS chat app for encrypted messaging. Can't really trust WhatsApp or WeChat. A little suspicious of Telegram. But Wire is fully open source so everyone knows what's going on.

    Would be great to natively support it in the Microsoft Launcher experience!

  10. Add the ability to pin apps to the 'recent' section

    Long press on an app and the option to pin apps in the context menu. This allows you to access apps you use frequently threat disappear off the recent section due to other app usage.

  14. Add gesture to show recent apps

    Hi on my phone the Recent Apps navbar button is pretty far away from my finger.
    It would be nice to have the ability to assign a gesture to open android recent apps view.

  17. Manually changed icon... Not showing in frequently used apps... In the dashboard of the main screen.

    I like customizing icons using icon packs.... But for few apps I need to change icons manually if the custom icon for that perticular app is not present in the icon pack...... But that dose not reflect in the frequent apps section. :(

  20. highlight the seen recent post from recent screen.

    Recent screen either should highlight the unread notification or highlight the seen notification.there should be some segregation what we have seen and what is unseen.hope you get it.
