  4. Bing daily only updates on home screen even though I have it set to update both lock and home screen.

    Despite having the daily Bing slideshow set to both the home screen AND the lock screen, every day only the home screen is updated and I have to re-set it.

  6. Home screen icons are way small now even when set on large after last update.

    Icons sizing is shrunk after recent update. Even when set to large they are half or less the size the were before the update. Update changed something bad.

  8. Tasks have all disappeared from the task widget

    Updated to the beta of 5.1, and my task list is now empty. As I only started using the list in 5.0, I don't know where it was saving the tasks to, so I don't know where to look to see if they have been deleted or are just no longer picked up by the widget.

  10. Hey cortana pauses music

    When you enable "hey cortana", music pauses whenever on the home screen.

    Launching an app or locking the device resumes playback.

    After setting my systems theme to dark mode and back, the folders automatically appear white all the time now. I tried going into the launcher settings to change it, but even after changing the theme it remains with a white background

  15. Cortana cannot play Spotify from launcher

    I have both the cortana app and the one in the launcher enabled. When using the app, I can tell cortana to play music on Spotify but when using it from the launcher it only opens Spotify an nothing happens. There seems no way to link the Spotify app as there is no notebook alternative.

    Launcher is set as the assist app.

  16. Microsoft Launcher deleted all my phone screens. all my apps and widgets are missing.

    how can I keep my existing homescreen , apps and widgets and run Microsoft Launcher? I want an app that will connect my phone and PC without changing the phone. Microsoft Launcher killed my ability to use my phone as it was. It is not functioning as an app but takes over the phone entirely.

  20. 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
