  2. The folder style was visually better before the last update. I can't configure the same way. Now the folder content is truncked when closed.

    1 -With the folder blurred background when I expand it.
    2 - Without the 9 apps limitation when into folder setted to full screen. Less rolling is one of the reasons I chose Microsoft Launcher.
    3 - Possibility to deactivate that zooming effect when opening a folder, and come back to fade.

  3. Folder page should hold more icons, like in the previous version. A huge amount of screen space is wasted if its only 3x3

    After the last update, each folder page only shows 9 icons (3x3). A huge amount is wasted by this, it was much more convinient before the update, where more icons were shown.

  4. Please Allow More Icons Per Folder Page; Perhaps You Could Allow The Density To Change Like On The Homescreen And Dock

    Please create the ability to have more icons per page in a folder. You could do this by allowing the user to change the row and column similar to the homescreen and dock

  5. App folders on the start screen looks really bad in the latest update. Both the little window and the full-screen version.

    Bring back the full-screen folder from previous versions, it looked and worked great. It showed all the apps in the folder on the same screen without needing to scroll. The new one only allows nine apps at once and looks really bad. At least give the user the choice to use the older type of full-screen folder.

  7. Folder now with black background?

    Why are the folder backgrounds now black? And can I reverse it to the previous transparent background?

  8. Return folder tap and swipe options

    There used to be an option of opening an app when tapping on a folder and showing the contents when swiping it. That was my most used feature and it went away in the latest update.

  9. Allow folder transparency change for new launcher.

    a sliding scale similar to how the capacity works for other settings in the Microsoft launcher that allows the folders to have altered transparency as currently I find it to be too dark and contrasting against my wallpaper.

  10. add to home

    it allow to group app into a folder in all app list, and allow to "add to home" for the grouped app folder, however when delete a app from the grouped folder in the app list (not the folder at the home), it does not reflect at the folder at the home, meant I have to manage every single grouped app folder at the home and at the all app list twice or more…
    I think at the home it should be a shortcut to the app folder so whenever a app deleted from that folder it should reflect at…

  11. Dock Folder sync

    you can drag a folder to the dock - but if you then add an app to that folder, it is only added to one of them - they are not kept in sync

  12. Change Folder background color per folder like Samsung launcher so they stand out.

    Samsung's launcher allows you to change the folder's background to different colors. If you have multiple folders on your home screen, you can quickly pick out the one that you want by the color.

  13. arrange folder content alphabetically in folder settings

    when adding apps to a folder to organize them, it'd be nice to be able to sort them in those folders alphabetically

  15. sorting apps in folders

    I'm sure that in previous versions there was an option to sort apps in folders alphabetically but it no longer seems to be an option. Can it be reinstated?

  16. ability to add apps to folders from app drawer

    Currently you have to select a minimum of two apps to create a folder. once the folder is created you have to open the folder click on the plus sign to add further apps. it would be easier to long press an app in the drawer and have an add to folder option which then gives a list of folders that you could select from.

  17. Alphabetical sorting of apps in app folders.

    In the older version of Microsoft Launcher there was an option to sort apps inside app folders in alphabetical order. Bring that option back... Please

  19. Folder sync between app drawer and home screen

    Creating a folder in the app drawer and then adding thst folder to the home screen should keep both folders synced so adding/removing an app frome one shows up in the other. Right now, I have to add/remove the app from both places.

  20. Sorted folders

    Folders should be sortable, either by following the same sorting setting for the app drawer or by having their own setting. If a folder is sorted alphabetically then any time an app is added, it should stay sorted.
