  3. disable or hide the 'new' app grouping

    when a new app is installed if you go to the app drawer it currently shows the new app in a grouping at the top and stays until the app has been opened at least once. this should be an option to disable.

  4. Remove letter navigation in the app drawer so apps are centered.

    Please give us the option to hide the letters on the right of the app drawer. With them there, apps aren't centered and looks bad.

  5. add custom sort options of apps and folders in app drawer, like., 1)alphabetical (the only option you provided) 2)recent 3)custom 4).....

    If you add this feature we can sort our app like our priority basis in app drawer, as of now there only alphabetical order so I want to see custom sort options. I used that option in my old HTC android (6.0) mobile. And another thing is you have to make drag and arrange option instead of select option.

  9. a separate app from OneDrive for pictures and videos only. It will pull our albums pictures and videos from OneDrive and allow for editing.

    It would make things much faster having a dedicated photo app instead of going through OneDrive. with editing tools.

  11. Please get rid of the Alphabets on the right in a vertical grid layout setting.

    I don't see the need of having alphabetical letters on the right where one chooses to have a vertical grid setting of their app drawer icons. Getting rid of the letters will increase negative space.

  13. Need a "Show/Hide App Folders" switch in App Drawer settings.

    This feature is basically the "Hide Apps when you move one to home screen" in Action Launcher.
    (Just migrated from Action Launcher, sorry)

    I use home screen as main apps and keep the others in App Drawer without a folder however in order to hide the ones that are already in my home page I create a random folder and put all the apps that I already have on my home page.

    Even you don't want to add this Action Launcher feature you can just add "Show/Hide App Folders" into App Drawer settings.

    Thanks in advance!

  15. App drawer should have more more customisation and tabs view to arrange apps and much more better way to hide apps just in app drawer

    The native way in Microsoft launcher in app drawer feels outdated ..there is no way to just hide apps only in app drawer..they get removed from everywhere..Add a feature to hide them in just the drawer .make the app drawer much more customisable with tabs showing different categories with card style tabs .. Categories can be put on the lower edge so as to get better reachability like something in poco phones or in smart launcher.. they have a much better organisation for app drawer..

  16. drag and drop to folder within app drawer

    I like having my app drawer organized into folders by category. Once the folder is made, since I cannot just drag and drop into a folder within the app drawer, I have to open the folder, choose "select apps" and then scroll through my hundreds of apps to find whatever goes in that folder. it's annoying, and will probably be why I go back to my old launcher

  18. app drawer list mode

    something similar to that of action launcher (not necessarily pulling out from the left side) but the alphabetical list makes it really easy to find apps. as it is right now, it's an alphabetical list and then a grid... which means I'm still searching for the app I'm looking for once I get to the right letter.

  20. Hide apps in app drawer without hiding apps on home screen.

    The ability to hide apps in app drawer without having the apps on home screen be hidden as well. Nova launcher has that feature and it helps to reduce duplication and clutter in app drawer.
