  1. Make it so I can choose how much resources(ram) I'd want to allow for windows launcher to run and show what ram usage Microsoft would prefer

    This way I can choose how much ram to allow Microsoft launcher to use like a pc and of course have Microsoft scan my system and recommend what ram usage is best for my system

  3. clean design for left panal

    a clean left panal. right now its to hard to focus on one thing. one launcher has a very clean design of its left panal that can be refrenced. i want big font , round edges, big headings, more padding and margin between cards. and no more horizontal scroll from left panal. right now we can still scroll it and see wallpaper behind it. and a white background for it. right now only cards have background on a transparent page.

  4. Plz add FingerPrint Sensor to move from left to right and up and down with double click to select/open so that it will work as touch pad.

    This option is not available in any android smartphone even in none of the operating systems of the smartphones. Therefore it will definitely popularize Microsoft which will give something new and handy feature. Most of the smartphones have its fingerprint sensor at the back side and fingers are downward when smartphone is in hand. It will give beautiful experience and will be user friendly. Plz add an option for FingerPrint Sensor to move from left to right and up and down with double click to select/open so that it will work as touch pad.

  6. Easier access to unlock Home Screen.

    Easier access to unlock Home Screen. Current: Microsoft Launcher > Home Screen Settings >Home Screen > Personalization > "Lock Home Screen". Easier access to Lock and unlock to remove apps and make changes would be greatly appreciated.

  8. Theme color picker

    Let users choose a custom color to apply to the launcher theme and not just five default colors. This custom color picker also has to have an alpha parameter for transparency.

  11. Add Cortana support in Launcher. So we can search "Hey cortana" directly from launcher home screen.

    We have to open Cortana app to use "Hey Cortana" command. Can you please build this command in luncher so that we can easily access Cortana commands from Microsoft Launcher.

    Easy way to do that is Build right screen feed menu from Cortana pages. One has to download Cortana app to access feed page.
    All the Cortana commands are available. Proudly a Windows Phone User.

  12. multiple widgets on card

    I would like to add more than one widget to a single card in the feed. I would also like to be able to position them. sometimes widgets are small with static size, it would be useful to be able to add more than one to a single card.

    目前测步数已经很普遍,关注自己每天的运动情况已经是很多人的习惯,如果能随时查看自己的步数,无需再进去软件去查看,就方便了。建议添加这个部件

  14. synchronize with Microsoft To-Do

    Microsoft Launcher is able to synchronize with Wunderlist.
    But, this app is unable to synchronize with Microsoft To-Do.
    I'd like you to support Microsoft To-Do.

  17. To-do sorting

    I would like to be able to sort to-do's so important ones are displayed on the top.
    Star feature would be also nice, where users can add a star to the to-do items and starred one comes too the top of the list.

  18. resizable card

    The cards (not only widget cards but all cards) need to be resizable so users don't miss what is hidden and can be seen only in "more" view.
