  1. Additional pages lock on homescreen

    Provide option for secure home screen page. I. e., setup code or password that must be entered upon an attempt to swipe/switch to that page. Obv it cannot be set as your primary Home screen page. This would allow widgets such as those showing investment information to be shown and secured.

  3. Fonts

    The new fonts after the update looks extremely ugly and I'm highly disappointed. Unsure why such a change! Please fix it back to what it was.

  4. the current one looks so ugly. like the whole thing. every single bit.

    it looks so bad I can't stand it. I wish I never updated Microsoft launcher. the old way was way better. I hate the blocky letters and the size of the apps on the home screen and the app drawer layout. it is all so ugly. the feed is fine because that didn't change much and I like how I can slide horizontally for the groups of apps, as well as the option for landscape mode on the lock screen and home screen. the color of the background of the group of apps is too dark. just go back to…

  9. Total home screen lock mode

    Option to lock home screen icons, widgets etc. and when the lock is set do not allow long press to move stuff. to be able to move it user will have to go to settings and unlock it there instead of showing message to unlock everytime icon moves by accident

  11. option to enable immersive mode / hide status and navigation bar

    (app overlay) most aftermarket edge lighting cannot overlay navigation bar on home screen, the option to hide the navigation bar will allow the flow of RGB edge lighting all around the screen to give the home screen a smooth, clean and attractive look.

  15. lock screen notification icons

    now notifications on the lock screen are shown in a wide bar which is very ugly. I would like to see small icons instead and next to them the numbers indicate the number of messages

  18. "Add to home" should not create new screen with only 1 app if default screen has space.

    It's really annoying that I have space on my only screen and want to add app there, but launcher keeps creating separate screen each time and I have to drag these apps which is slow

  19. feed

    In "your feed" give the ability to move the "search bar" down, so you can get there more easily with your thumb.

  20. feed

    In "your feed" it would be convenient to have a fixed button at the bottom to "go back up.
