        • App folders non full screen opacity

          having app folders not open full screen has helped with one handed use but it would be a nice addition to have the background of the folder as a toggle or have a opacity slider.

            • Selection for folder icons should include the icon of first app in the folder

              want the folder icon to reflect the icon of first app if folder setup to open on first tap (just like Nova Launcher)

              • Add a background to app folders

                app folders should have a background when opened. it should probably match the app folder theme selected for closed app folders (dark or light, square or rounded)

                • Give folder popup a different name than the icon

                  Allow the folder popup to have a different name than the icon. I like to have Google Pay on my home screen, then have all my banking apps popup when I swipe that icon. Trouble is the popup currently has to be named Google Pay. It'd be nice for it to be called Google Pay on the home screen, but the popup called Banking.

                  • Long press to add apps to folder

                    Now, the only way to add an app to an app folder is to open the folder and select add apps to folder. Then I have to scroll through a list of apps to select one -- or several.

                    I want you to add an option to the long press menu to add the app to an app folder.

                    • Total icons shown in a folder created

                      The option to choose how many app icons can be shown in a folder its by default 4 maybe choosing more is better because it can be changed to make look folder nicer when using zoom function.

                        Colocar a opção de quebra de linha nas pastas também, a Microsoft tem os melhores profissionais, mas tem hora que parece uma empresa amadora, são recursos tão simples que tem em outras Louches que vocês deven adicionar na de vocês.

                        • Hide apps already in folders when adding app to folder

                          When add to folder setting is set to move to folder - it would be easier to add apps to folders when only applications which are not added to any folder will be shown in add to folder applications list.

                          • could you please add ability to scale folders (icons inside folders). Look at Nova Launcher as an example. Current icons are too small.

                            current icons inside folder are too small, so i can barely see them. The Nova launcher allowed to customise the icons scaling ratio inside folders. I would like to have the same functionality here.

                              • app folder icon modified

                                app folder icon opens full screen. so very uncomfortable to touch the inbuit icon. so my suggestion app folder tap to open very minimal size to open.

                                • When app folders open - please position the apps a bit lower on the screen or at least give us the option. thanks

                                  when I open an apps folder the apps line up near the bottom of the screen for easier access

                                  • folders and how much space on the scream they occupy can dramatically be reduced making it quicker to transfer between sub folders and files

                                    When selecting folder on the home screen, it can be a lot quicker it doesn't automatically overtake the entire screen because the distance between taps and their location on the screen would be a lot closer, and it's less detracting so that the user isn't too interrupted by that transition.

                                    • 希望在文件夹中添加应用程序时可以隐藏其他文件夹添加过的程序,这样可以避免重复添加,对于应用比较多需要用文件夹来归类的人会方便很多。

                                      1:希望在文件夹中添加应用程序时可以隐藏其他文件夹添加过的程序,这样可以避免重复添加,对于应用比较多需要用文件夹来归类的人会方便很多。
                                      2:抽屉内的文件夹添加到桌面后再往抽屉内的文件夹添加应用桌面文件夹不会同步数据,导致桌面文件夹不会出现新添加的应用。
                                      应用过多,迫切需要这个功能

                                        • Folder Microsoft launcher

                                          Launcher treats folder in the menu and on desktop as different objects causing lot of double work to manage them.
                                          I would propose to link the two objects
