                    • Scrolling is slow and sometimes doesn't respond

                      Latest version scrolling up and down or between windows are lacking and really slow. On homescreen sometimes it's needed to pull down to refresh the screen before being able to scroll down. Restart have not solved the issue. Using a Huawei P10 Plus.

                        • Virtual keyboard glitch

                          Virtual Keyboard appears on screen after hitting home button from any screen regardless as to if it was in use or not. Constantly have to manually back out or tap home button again, super annoying. Restarting Microsoft launcher used to help for a bit and now seems to do nothing.

                          • Laggy animations

                            Animations like swiping pages on home screen, swiping up the dock and scrolling through app drawer every animation looks a bit laggy. It doesn't feel snappier like my default Pixel launcher. The lag in animations is very noticeable and occurs all the time.

                              • Screen goes blank. No icons.

                                l love the launcher. However, on a daily basis or several times a day, my screen goes blank/black after closing an app. l have no icons and can do nothing. My assistant can't even open any apps. The only way to restore is to reboot the phone.
