    It asks for 'Accessibility' permission to lockscreen on double tap (gesture) even though it is already given!

  2. News story blank

    When I click on a news story, launcher navigates to the url and displays the story. At random points, the screen is blanked... The window looses all the text. Scrolling does not bring it back. I have to nav backwards to the news story list, re navigate to the story. Now I can read it until it decides to blank out again. Very frustrating.

  6. news feed

    FOX NEWS is appearing in my news feed. Obviously, I find this abhorrent. We need to be able to choose which websites MSL skims headlines from.

  7. News feed incorrect market

    News market set to either system or English USA, still provides news from areas of the USA that are not local to me and of no interest to me.

  12. news sources

    Is there a way to curate - or, more importantly - block certain news sources from the News feed? I like the general layout etc but am unhappy with some sources, and would like to try and 'train' the feed to present more items of interest to me.

  14. News card articles

    Upon opening an article from the news card from the Microsoft launcher, the article is opened at a non-native screen resolution providing borders on either side and stretching vertically into the status bar. In addition, a semi-transparent black film is placed over the article.
    This does not happen when opening the Microsoft news app and then opening the same article.

  17. News feed still showing sports news when topic disabled.

    News feed still shows sports news even when sports topic is disabled. News sources with "sports" in their name are showing up. You'd think that would be the first keyword to look for when excluding articles...

  18. Scrolling down the news (while reading) is extremely flawed. The page stops to move left/right.

    If I scroll perfectly vertical, then it's alright. But a little diagonal, and it detects it as scrolling left/right and tries to move to the next/previous news.

  19. old news in the news feed.

    I'm seeing about 50% articles from over 9months ago. I'd prefer news to be stuff I didn't yet know to have happened.
