  1. Launcher backups should indicate which device the backup is from, before restoring

    Currently all the launcher backups appear as one type, by date. There is no way of knowing which device the backup is from.
    If you use Launcher on more than one device, how do you know which one to use?

  4. move backups to Apps/ArrowBackup

    It will tidy up my OneDrive and stop bugging the bejesus out of me, in fact move all app backups to the Apps folder/AppNameBackup or /AppNameSettings, simples some already do it - consistency MS 😋

  7. To be able to name the backups of the launcher would be great, i think.

    i have multiple setups that i have backed up on Microsoft launcher. But because i can't put a lable on the backup, i often have to attempt multiple times to get back to an older setup. so i would love to be able to name the saved ones.

  9. Backup 2 devices

    I use the MS Launcher on my Smartphone and Tablet. When restoring a Backup i can not distinguish where the backup came from. Can you add the Source Information to the Backup (the Device Name or Type)?

  15. Please add support of setting previous desktop from native system - it is not comfortable to set all my apps in my own order again

    When you are switching on the launcher, you will have a choise - clear desktop, or set it from my previous desktop. I know that it could be hard to do because of different default launchers from different vendors, but without this feature it is hard to switch from MIUI or similar system, where you have all apps on desktop.

  16. backup

    Automate backups. Allow users to set a threshold for automatically backing up the config (i.e., a pick list for selecting hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, on changes, or on startup. Allow PIN to be saved and destinations to be set.

  19. Yedekleme

    Yedekleme yaptiktan sonra, geri yüklerken tüm uygulamaları geri yüklemesi ve uygulama simgelerinin yerlerini hatırlayıp düzenlerse çok iyi olur.
