  3. since the last update, my icons are much smaller and the app freezes and locks up. what's going on?

    since th last update, my home screen icons have shrunk and when I try to change them back to their original size, they get smaller and smaller and smaller, to tiny little dots.

    the app is freezing and forcing me to kill it and restart it as well.

    what's going on?

  6. Space between dock and icons on home screen

    Since the latest update (April 8) there is a large space between the dock and the icons on the home screen that isn't usable. This is almost the space of an entire row. Please fix this grid.

  8. android 10

    There are some minor graphical glitches with the launcher on android 10. apps don't shrink back to there place on the desktop but instead fade away then pop up for a second again before showing the desktop properly. Looks like some animation problems. Otherwise, I haven't had any major problems with this launcher on android 10.

  10. Chrome shortcuts not being added to home screen

    On Chrome, there is a feature where you can add shortcuts to websites to your home screen. For some reason, these shortcuts do not appear on the home screen when using Microsoft launcher. It definately used to work, and I have only noticed this not working recently.

  14. Home screen not reacting

    After some time, the home screen is stuck:
    It is not responding to a tab for opening an app or to gestures.
    Notification drawer and On-Screen-Buttons (Back, Home, Recents) work. Screenlock can also be unlocked by pointing with the fingers on the numbers.

    Problem is that the launcher is not responding.

    I cannot remember a parituclar action I did before the issue. It happens once in a week and a phone restart solves the issue.

  15. Blank page

    There is NO WAY to create a blank page on the home screen in the most recent update. I have a screenshot to show you. Please restore the ability to create black screens to the homepage so we can have more than one page with apps.

  19. Launcher freezes when awaking from sleep

    When turning screen on, sometimes the home screen is frozen. I can use Android's pull-down menu to open settings, then hit the home button and everything works fine again. This seems to happen in waves. most days are fine, but some days it happens frequently. When this happens, the time on the home screen shows the last time the phone was used. Clearing the cache partition does not resolve the issue. I also excluded the launcher from battery optimization. Nothing I have tried seems to help.
