                          my app drawer disappeared from the main screen and I can't reach my apps. I tried turning it off and on again and... well, that's about all I've done actually

                          • app drawer doesn't open on swipe up of dock

                            open app drawer is assigned to the swipe up from dock gesture, if I swipe up I get a blank screen that looks like the app drawer with nothing to all there. other gestures (double tap) works for opening app drawer, and if I use double tap then close it, then swipe up, sometimes it works.

                              • App icon badge

                                Messaging app icon badge shows new messages when there are none. This occurs after new messages have been read and the app is closed. Opening and closing the app again will clear the badge. This also occurs randomly, for example, after first turning on the phone, and after re-reading messages. Again, opening and closing the app will clear the badge.

                                      The reward points shown in launcher is incorrect. If you go to Microsoft rewards page, then that shows the correct value.

                                      • Dock doesn't wan to go all the way down

                                        With few latest updates I have noticed the problem with Dock. My dock is hidden and when I want to swipe it down it doesn't want to go all the way down. Dock icons overlay on my screen icons ant is impossible to swipe left and right. So I have to try few times swipe the Dock down to finaly close it, so after that I'm able to swipe left and right.
