  2. Search

    How about, when you have deselected to "Show recent apps" from the "Drop down search screen" that it "could" fill up with MORE than only 3 recent search results, like, a full, scrollable screen of previous search entries; with the Settings Option that I would see easily controllable for Users in 2 styles:


    1. A editable text input box where a user can specify more or less than the (envisioned basic number of 3 items) from zero to xyz...

    Or

  3. please add the feature that allows to open an app whit the enter key in the search section.

    in Windows 10 I press the windows key, type the app I want to launch and press enter for launching it, is possible to do it also in Microsoft launcher in the search section? now I search an app and the enter key starts chrome, searching the word on Google.

  4. Search Results should not show web results

    When I'm using the search option it is mostly for apps, but the search results first show results from web then the Apps section. There should be an option to allow for search results to show ONLY apps

  11. Rename contextual search

    When long-pressing text in a web browser, the MS Launcher adds a "Search" option. Only problem is that the option to search within the web page for text is also called Search. So I keep pressing the MS one which I do not want to use at all.

  12. Search widget to be customized.

    earlier I can search any device related things by using search widget without opening app drawer or any other app but now with the web option in place which is annoying us to open any app or call anyone without hassle and there is no swipe option to quickly swipe to choose device or a customisation to choose only device or a shuffle option to choose anything on users priority. hope you understand and sort this issue of search widget customisation. thanks 😊b.harshb.

  13. Remove web and device search from search bar, make it one thing.

    Make it so the search does both web and device search in one shot.

  15. search suggestions

    search suggestions are directly over the keyboard so you have to stop typing to wait for a suggestion to come in and go so you can continue typing very poor execution. also the text reading floating icon. needs to be able to be located with the other apps the idea of the floating it's always in the way.

  17. option to swap the search results from the launcher, I would like the apps I have installed to be first suggestions returned

    as I usually search for apps In my launcher the online results that are displayed first have little to no use for me instead I would like the option to swap the online results with my installed apps search result (which is currently displayed below, underneath the keyboard). the online results are not always returned instantly as the apps and sometimes while clicking the app an extra online result is added and now I click that and not the apps as I thought
