  4. Backup

    Allow us to select which folder location to backup; whether local (such as SD card) or in OneDrive. Most of my other apps backup to the "Apps" directory in OneDrive, but not MS Launcher and I can't change the directory. It's annoying from an administration point of view because all of my backups are not in the same location. Thx!

  5. Option to change the path to the OneDrive backup folder

    Now it backups to a ArrowBackup folder in the root folder. There's no option to change this path.

  6. Backup with APK & OBB files !

    It will be fantastic if MS will add an option to choose in backup tab to add APK and OBB files so that way, when we restore a backup (after switching from custom Rom / or new smartphone) we don't have to reinstall one by one all the apps from Google Play Store.
    Do it ! Pleease

  7. Re-initiate the "Restart Launcher" feature on Androids

    "Restart Launcher" was a crucial feature in the previous version of Microsoft Launcher before the recent update. This feature gave Android user(s) the ability to "restart" the launcher at any moment from the launcher settings whenever possible, whether it be to improve system performance, halt battery drainage, to force stop apps from operating in the background, or simply restart the launcher to reassure it is operating at peak performance. The most important reason(in my opinion) is to restore the some user(s) confidence and belief for downloading Microsoft Launcher in the first place, to improve their accessibility on their previous generation…

  9. Restore Internet Links Stored On The Phone

    I have a cheap phone that keeps erasing everything. Microsoft Launcher is a God Send. I can restore all apps with one button push. However, any internet links stored on a separate home screen page do not restore. Please make it possible to restore internet links stored on home screen pages.

  10. multiple devices

    be able to have multiple devices with their own backups per user email. I have 1 phone and two tablets, I discovered the pain way that every tablet backup overwrote the phone backup. and yes I'm positive, on the restore my cellphone had the wallpaper that's ONLY on my tablet. I have the same Hotmail address for all 3 devices- why not have backups tied to device name or mfg ID ?

  13. It would be great if the launcher would save links / icons created from my browser (save to home page).

    When backing up and restoring my launcher settings, the icons I created in Firefox using 'save to home page' were not saved in the backup forcing me to recreate them.

  15. Import launcher-layout from phone

    I want to import my launcher layout & settings from ie. LG phone.
    Else, using this Microsoft launcher would waste several hours time in order to recreate my layout from the LG phone.

  16. Backup of Web links & document links

    I really would like it if web pages/links and document links pinned to the home page or in folders could be backed up and restored. Every time I have to restore my home screen all my pinned web links, OneNote links or Excel links have to manually be recreated. This is a frustrating and time consuming process.

  17. Arrowbackup file on OneDrive is awkward. Let us pick a directory in OneDrive.

    When "backing up" to cloud in Launcher, let us choose which folder in OneDrive (instead of automatically creating a "arrowbackup" directory in OneDrive.) Alternatively, if above suggest is troublesome, the put arrowbackup in the Apps directory in OneDrive.

  19. Web shortcut backup

    We are allowed to place web shortcuts on the home screen and in tile folders/groups. Can you please back these up? The last time I restored the layout - they were lost. Thanks
