  2. 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

  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. 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.

  6. 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. 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.

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  13. Folder background opacity/transparency

  15. folder animation

    On folders from the home screen you can see four apps. Those four apps should sit next to each other when the folder is open. Currently they change order so what you see before and after the folder is open is completely different.

  18. Update the Look, Feel, and Function

    PLEASE GIVE US THE OPTION TO FREE SCROLL IN OUR FOLDERS!! Why do you and Samsung force pages on us?! Pages are dated and should be a choice not a locked in element. The design of this launcher is getting very very dated. It could use many material design updates or something to bring it into 2020 rather than 2014. Just something to update the look and feel please.

  19. Full screen folders show more icons

    In the beta that just came out, I like the folders displaying full screen. However I would like more icons to display in that mode. If this could be controlled in options similar to how the icon grid for home screen and app drawer can, that would be perfect.
