        • 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.
