  3. launcher stops when switching between apps. the program stops without warning and goes back to the default android look

    when I press the button or use a gesture to swap between apps, the launcher stops working. it goes back to default android. pressing the home button again brings back the ms launcher.

  9. search

    After update search function from home screen has been removed. Search function is quicker for app switching (from home screen) rather than scrolling through app drawer.

  10. Icon size too large after update 6.210104.0. 943621

    I appreciate the work done to make Microsoft Launcher as great as it is. But after the lastest update on Feb/2/2021, the icons are too large and are stuck that way. They cannot be changed in the settings.

  13. Icons shrank

    With the latest update my icons all shrank noticeably. In the settings padding is turned on, but I can't turn it off, and I can make them smaller, but even at the largest size, they are significantly smaller than before.

  14. Transparency of the Taskbar is lost when hiding status bar causing black blank status bar. Plz fix that.

    The transparency of the home screen status bar is 0% whenever you hide the task bar. It is only regained when you pull down the notifications to Un hide the status bar.

  16. Notification badges not turning on

    I am unable to turn-on Notification badges on Redmi 9 Power (with MIUI 12) even after providing notifications access to Microsoft. Launcher. The switch remains in off state and if I try to turn it on, it takes me to permissions page where the launcher already has access to notifications. Re-applying notifications access doesn't help either.

  19. Last update messed up most of the Launcher's layouts

    Yesterday, Feb 8, I got the latest update. After closing Google Play Store, I switched back to the launcher home page and noticed that my recent apps' page was empty. I switched to my widgets page and all of them were overlapping and with an exaggerated to and bottom margin. I didn't find a way to fix this. All of the other pages were empty. I rebooted the phone but to no avail.
