            • Bing Daily Wallpaper Does Not Dowload Nor Change Automatically Anymore

              I am using Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android version 7.0.0 and the Bing Daily Wallpaper used to automatically download and change everyday on my home and lock screen. For at least a month now, possibly longer, it no longer works. I have no setting to set it to download automatically, and I have to download the Bing Wallpaper manually and set it to be the wallpaper. Please fix or I will stop using Microsoft launcher. On a side note, Bing Daily Wallpaper still works on my Samsung Galaxy 4 tablet using Android 4.4.2

                • launcher scrolls back to home screen when quitting any app by pressing home button

                  one OnePlus 3T oreo exiting out of any app by using home button also scrolls back the launcher to home screen. the app should exit but the launcher shouldn't scroll back to home screen on single home button press. this problem is not present on my Samsung s7 nougat. so it seems a phone dependent bug for ms launcher.

                    • double tap to lock screen(timeout so you can use fingerprint to unlock) on lg g5 does not lock just makes the screen go black.

                      when I set double tap to lock for a timeout so that I can use the fingerprint to unlock, the screen just goes black. you can touch the screen and hit the home button and get back into the device without having to use fingerprints out a pin. it never actually locks. this is on an LG G5

                        • Bing daily wallpaper not changeable

                          Bing daily wallpaper not changeable. Before updating, one could click on the Bing button on the home screen and then scroll to set a new wallpaper. That functionality does not exist anymore

                              • as I go back to home screen after closing any app the home screen remains empty till the time I restart the app or do some random stuff

                                as soon as I finish using any app and wish to return to homescreen by pressing home button or back button, I get nothing on the screen and for me to bring everything back to normal I had to restart the Microsoft Launcher or do some random task like opening drawer or something like that.

                                        • Calendar page doesn't show selected calendars

                                          The calendars I select for the the calendar page to show has no bearing on what calendars the calendar page actually shows. Non-selected calendars still show, and selected calendars do not always show.
