  1. Android-10 gesture mode doesn't work with the launcher

    Use a device with android 10 (pixel or nokia 9)
    Go to settings - > sytem - > gestures and select gesture mode.
    Set now the Microsoft Launcher as default Launcher

    Expected:
    I still can use Gesture to navigate around

    Actual:
    Android switch the navigation mode back to the bottom bar navigation

  2. Home screen icon size stuck on smallest

    Perhaps 95% of the time the icon size slider can't be moved off smallest
    This is on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.
    Setting row or column count to any number makes no difference. My preferred counts are 5x5.
    Portrait or landscape mode makes no difference either.
    Occasionally, restarting the tablet fixes the issue.

  5. Glance fails to show

    Every so often the glance feed will just fail to show anything, and the only solution is to completely restart the Launcher

  6. Home screen icons sometimes lose their names underneath them. They reappear if you move the icon to reposition it.

  8. Closing all apps reverts back to One UI

    Every time I close all apps via the recent apps screen, my launcher reverts back to One UI. tapping the home button will bring MS Launcher back up so it's not a default app issue like some others have reported. It's only when closing all apps

  10. Shortcut names for apps aren't shown when the icons are held.

    When icons in the home screen are held for a few seconds, the supposedly shortcuts are going to appear. However, on this Launcher, the shortcut icons are shown but the names aren't.
