    • Vertical app drawer, but not alphabetically split

      A vertically listed app drawer with every letter after the other. The way it is now makes my list so much longer than it has to be.

      • please provide windows 10 live tiles in your next Microsoft launcher update.

        • sorting apps in the app drawer is extremely hard. It would be easier if we could just drag apps to different pages or into folders.

          When you click and hold on an app in the app drawer instead of allowing us to add it to homescreen, we should be app to move the app within the app drawer, to different pages or into another add which creates a folder.

              • Add app icon in drawer into existing folder.

                You can add/move icon app into folder (then automatically creat 'app folders' section) in app drawer. But if there is one or two app that you forget to add/move into the same folder you created before, you can't join them. Sure it can by adding in the folder option, but it only copying the icon app instead of moving the icon app in app drawer.

                • App-Drawer - Manually sort and organize Apps

                  A good feature would be if the apps in the app drawer could be organized manually/free by dragging to the position I want. Also if the folders could be dragged to a specified position would be nice. I hope this feature can be implemented. In the future. Actually the launcher works perfektly fast and without problems. Thx

                  • Hide apps

                    When hiding apps from the app drawer, they should not be removed from the homescreen too
                    For example, if I've already placed the contacts app on the dock and want it to be hidden from the drawer only.

                    • Ability to drag apps into folder rather than "Select multiple". And also drag apps out of folder border to remove.

                      It will remove the hassle of apps sorting due to the "bug". The problem which you need to scroll through all full list of sorted and unsorted to find single unsorted app.

                              • Startbildschirm Design

                                In the area "Add start screen" icons are bordered transparently (tile optics). In this design, the home screen with attached apps would be desirable.
                                ---
                                Im Bereich "Startbildschirm hinzufügen" sind Icons transparent eingefasst (Kacheloptik). In diesem Design wäre der Homescreen mit angehefteten Apps wünschenswert.

                                      • app drawer single file option on alphabetical list so a person can actually read the full names of the icons.

                                        Nova launcher and Launcher 10 each have a nice single column list for the app drawer. It is clean, efficient, and most inportantly readable. It is also reminiscant of your own Windows eco system.
