        • icons not showing up

          in the home screen, after the recent update, I'm not able to see any icons sometimes. even gestures, long press - nothing works. I have to go to app launcher and drag an app to main screen and all apps shortcuts come back.

          • Latesr update messed up icon sizing

            App icons on default are way too big.
            However, changing it to be smaller makes the dock icons unbelievably tiny, while the apps outside it are decently sized.

              • All icons are disappearing.

                app icons are disappearing. the only way to fix the issue is long press on the app drawer icon.

                • adding OneNote page shortcut

                  I have long been unable to add shortcuts to individual OneNote pages in ms launcher. usually it goes through the motions, tells me there shortcut had been added, and nothing appears. now it says (since 2 weeks update) 'can't add shortcuts'!

                                I have no way to add app link (not widget) to screen. The only way to do it - relaunch application and reselect apps in install master, but it's kind of weird way

                                  • Hay, there, I have a little issue with synchronisation with my PC

                                    Hay, there,
                                    I received a message from Microsoft but there was no link to Microsoft Launcher, there was a link to Microsoft Edge, which isn't available to my country... Can you tell me how to fix this issue ? Or would you suppose other option to link my phone and my PC ?
                                    Thank you ;)
                                    P.S. Please excuse my bad English.

                                      After the recent update, my app layout icons have become really big and now I can't even resize them. I can resize the icons in home screen but not in the place where all my icons are shown.
