    • Microsoft Launcher search bar searches are not registering in Microsoft Rewards launcher search promotion.

      On both my wife's Pixel 2 and my Pixel 2 XL out Microsoft Launcher searches are not registering under the pertinent Launcher search promotion on the Microsoft Rewards dashboard, never moving from displaying 0/100. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling Microsoft Launcher, sign in out and back into Microsoft Account, restarting phone.

          • Search bar only shows on bottom on one screen, top on the others

            Per the title, setting Microsoft Launcher to show the search bar on the bottom causes it to only apply to the main home screen, the others have the search bar on the top, ignoring the setting.

                • Search bar position not on bottom on all pages

                  When I choose to have the search bar displayed on the bottom, this is only done on my main page. It still displays on top on all of my other pages.

                      • Qr reader not in search bar

                        My search bar went from having the qr reader to having a camera instead. Trying to figure out if I removed a setting, but can't find anything that would cause it to happen.
