                  My wallpaper slideshow has not changed wallpaper at all, ever. It's been over 24 hours and it's still the same wallpaper. How often is it supposed to change? Can we please have an option to determine how often it changes?

                  • Calendar widget's "Add event" doesn't work if you choose Outlook as target, it doesn't do anything.

                    Adding an event from the Calendar widget with Outlook as the target app doesn't open Outlook.

                        • Apps often don't launch

                          In the last week or so, launcher has changed. I tap an icon, it animates (ie I definitely tapped it) but it doesn't launch. Sometimes it takes 2-3 goes. Also sometimes I don't see it animate. Is there a system setting that could do this? I was experimenting with emergency mode, and wonder if that broke something. Thanks.

                              the widget in the dock is great, but when I touch the "plane" mode, it goes to the settings instead of just activating it. Same with GPS icon and others

                                      • Timeline not updating

                                        Windowz Timeline in the Feed attempts to update with activities from my other devices but times out and shows as empty.
