    • Please let launcher have a capability than can use as a message alert tone when receiving message by saying "(x) messages received from (y)

      let Cortana announce when a message is received.ON automatically when connected to bluetooth,ON anytime, read the content when driving,.launcher hidden apps must be protected with password different from screen lock password.there should also hidden photos and videos where its location can be manually located or default in external SD card to avoid internal memory shortage.

      • Option to hide apps from the app drawer only vs. hiding them globally

        Right now hidden apps will disappear from both the app drawer and the homescreen.
        An option for a "softer" hide, i.e. apps will be hidden from the drawer, but remain on the homescreen, would be nice for keeping everything clean. When I've placed an app on the homescreen, I usually don't need to access it from the app drawer anymore.
        A toggle for global/drawer-only would be nice

              • Create folders in Hidden Apps

                Since I got too many apps hidden, it turns out to be "messy" to use, since all apps are displayed in Hidden Apps area, and there is no way to group them, I would like to have a feature where I can simply put them in a group or folders.

                    • I suggest moving the application hiding point from the menu to the context menu of each application.

                      In the context menu, which is caused by a long press on the application shortcut, I suggest adding the ability to hide this application, and remove the ability to hide applications from the menu, since it was difficult for me to deal with this problem

                      • Add a default vault.

                        Attach a default vault with Microsoft launcher which can can be protected by using pin, MS A/c password or fingerprint. This vault is helpful for keeping files, photos etc.

                        • Implement another mode of the initial screen

                          Hello. I suggest you implement another mode of the initial screen. All applications would be displayed on it (as in iOS or MIUI). Without the application container.

                              • Make it easier to remove apps. Currently a two step process, should be one.

                                Hold on app, either remove option presented, or drag app to top trash to remove.

                                      • lock and better hidden apps

                                        whats the point of lovking hidden apps if i can go to settings and change launcher to see them in other launcher. so plz consider a better lock app function in the app using face or inbuild features like fingerprint and that works every time when i try to open that app in any launcher.
