What new feature or idea would you like to see in Arrow?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

  1. In the search screen First result to be apps then the web search

    Yeah sometimes I want to find an app on my phone but when I search it it appears so down I can't tap it unless I close the keyboard and I would like that the apps were up and then the web search.

  2. Remove the search bar from the top of the widget page

    Because I like having my search bar set to be in the expanded home screen dock, I think it'd be nice if we had the option to remove the search bar from the top of the widget page (the default page to the left of home). It just eliminates some redundancy.

  4. Have the choice to place the search input of the global search in the top or bottom of the screen

    In the settings, have the choice to place the search input of global search on top or bottom. The voice search and the qr code reader will be easier to be selected.

  7. App search

    Can you please provide a search bar only for the installed apps in the mobile. Currently when i search web search is listed first followed by installed apps. Provide separate search for installed apps.

  8. In the search engine, option should be given whether to show apps or search results first. Now by default we'll see search results.

    In the search engine, option should be given whether to show apps or search results first. Now by default we'll see search results and then other results like apps, contacts, then arrow settings. We can Customize the order for all other things apart from the search results.

  9. Search OneDrive

    Launcher search should work like windows search. It would be a more consistent cross platform experience. The most important thing would be showing OneDrive documents, including those not stored locally, and the most relevant results first.

  11. Remove the Arrow Name in the Search.

    When I search similar things like 'Settings' in the Search, it shows Arrow Settings. This launcher is no longer the Arrow launcher so I suggest remove Arrow Words. Some people don't know what Arrow is so it could be confusing for some people.

  12. I would like to select Ecosia as my standard searchengine in the launcher.

    It would be nice to have more searchengines as a choice and Esconia is a climatefriendly searchengine.

  13. Look for documents in SD Card

    When I search for documents in the launcher, my documents stored in the sd card aren't shown. Update the app so that we can find these documents

  14. Searches shouldn't open as new browser tabs

    Currently, when a search is performed via the search widget within Microsoft launcher, it runs in a new tab in Microsoft edge which doesn't close when I exit edge. ideally this should perform similarly to the way Google implements it's search widget. opening in a separate app with the option to open within the browser.

    I regularly have around 20+ tabs open in egde because I have to remember to close my search tabs every single time I use the widget. very frustrating.

  17. Implement instant inline search result like google search bar

    For example, a stock price can be shown as soon as you type MSFT in the search bar. Google search bar currently supports this.

  20. 桌面搜索框搜索内容设置

    现在的搜索,优先是网页然后是本地应用,这个能否设置为本地应用优先呢,每次搜索本地应用,搜索到的应用列表在输入法后面,需要收起输入法后再选择应用,这样的操作还是蛮复杂的,建议设置本地应用是否优先的按钮。
