        • Tasks have all disappeared from the task widget

          Updated to the beta of 5.1, and my task list is now empty. As I only started using the list in 5.0, I don't know where it was saving the tasks to, so I don't know where to look to see if they have been deleted or are just no longer picked up by the widget.

            • Widgets disappear from home screen

              Widgets dissappear after random events (lick/unlock; going home from an app; going to settings...).
              I need to add the same widget once, than remove it, than add it once again and all the widgets reappear. This was an issue in the past. I reported it. It got fixed. Now it's happening again. It doesn't matter if I lock the home screen or not.

                        • Automatically removes itself from the default launcher. I have to set it as the default launcher again and again.

                          Sometimes the microsoft laubcher remives itself from the default launcher. Then i have to again open the launcher app from the app drawer, long tap the home screen and set it as the default launcher. This happens frequently and is annoying and time consuming.

                            • Microsoft Launcher deleted all my phone screens. all my apps and widgets are missing.

                              how can I keep my existing homescreen , apps and widgets and run Microsoft Launcher? I want an app that will connect my phone and PC without changing the phone. Microsoft Launcher killed my ability to use my phone as it was. It is not functioning as an app but takes over the phone entirely.
