  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.

  4. can't delete page

    I can't delete pages. So now I just have empty pages for no good reason. The internet says there should be a delete button, but there isn't one.

  5. Samsung contact widget

    The samsung contact widget is no longer displaying the contact image. Instead it shows the green alien head with two antennae. I'm running the beta so this may just be that. I have taken a screenshot if that helps

    Observe that the icons are reasonably sized,
    Fold screen closed,
    Unfold screen,

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

  15. when the launcher is in dark mode & coming back to home after I swap up to open app drawer , the status bar completely turns black

    when I come back to home screen after swiping to app drawer, the home icons names (underneath) and status bar above turn into black color, failing to recognize the dark background. Launcher is in dark mode but this wasn't a problem in the past.

  16. Enabling the layout feature in the Task Changer does not immediately take effect in Microsoft Launcher.

    Enabling the layout feature in the new Task Changer module of the Home Up app in Samsung's Good Lock utility does not take immediately effect.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1 ensure Microsoft Launcher is the default launcher
    2 run Samsung's Good Lock utility -> select the Home Up module -> select Home Screen Layout -> select a layout iron
    3 go back to the Home screen and tap the task viewer carousel button to view the list of running take

    Result:
    There is no change in task layout behavior.

    Expectation:
    The selected change should take effect.

    Notes:
    To work around this…

  18. Initial home screen when unlocking phone is no longer Microsoft Launcher

    When unlocking phone for use, the initial screen no longer shows my Microsoft Launcher folders and icons but a random arrangement of large app icons and a search bar. However, if I tap the square Home icon/button, I am returned to my customized Microsoft Launcher Home Screen. This change occurred after the most recent Android update.

  19. clear close all apps from menu button missing

    pressing the square menu button correctly shows all open apps, can toggle to last used or swipe to select others. there used to be a "close all" option but that is missing. instead if you want to remove them it is necessary to individually swipe up or select cross on each one.
