  1. Please add an Auto-Rotate feature so the home screen can be horizontal or vertical depending on the way you hold your phone

    I believe it will use the phone sensor or camera to detect if the phone is vertical or horizontal then it will flip around to the way you are holding your phone ... my phone has it built in but it does not work with Microsoft Launcher

  2. Landscape orientation on phone - Samsung Note8 launcher allows landscape, why not MS Launcher?

    Either enable and respect the "Display > Home > Enable landscape" option in system settings, or include a Launcher setting option to enable landscape autorotation.

    When I use MS Launcher on a 10" screen tablet it autorotates to landscape perfectly. I want my Note8 phone to behave the same.

  10. Landscape rotation for phone launcher as it's useful when output to a monitor or TV screen.

    monitor screen is always on the default portrait mode when connected to the phone via hdmi or mira cast. that isnt ideal with a mouse and keyboard combo as the switch between apps to launcher causes eye stress between portrait and landscape mode.

  11. Utilize Quickstep API on recent Android Pie builds (rooted users and OEMs only)

    On recent versions of Android Pie, there is an API called Quickstep that essentially enables the integration of a search bar, your five most recently used apps, and the ability to pull up on those five icons to access your app drawer while in recents. Well, Google recently opened up this API to OEMs so they can ship their own launcher with this ability. Why not do this on devices that ship with this launcher (if there are any)? Also rooted users can access this feature. It would take a bit of work, and maybe a Magisk module, but Microsoft…

  14. setting

    Olá,

    Acho que seria legal os usuários terem a opção de colocar uma senha para bloquear aplicativos, evitando o uso de aplicativos de terceiros que não cumprem o papel de proteção e configuração (como o tempo que cada app deverá bloquear).

  17. About EMUI9's third-party desktop limit

    EMUI9 limits the use of third-party desktops, and developers need to apply to huawei for some kind of license to use it. Can we apply for it? I hope to be able to use Microsoft desktop on EMUI9 as well!

  20. Landscape Mode

    I would love to a landscape orientation for this launcher, I'm already loving it, but it would be even more awesome if it can have a landscape orientation, so if I have my phone sideways, and have to go to the home screen, I won't have to flip my phone back to the portrait orientation. It keeps the flow going and in some ways, I find it better to use my phone in landscape mode than portrait mode unless I have to pull my phone out quickly or to make a quick message or make a call, but still! Add…
