      • lost widgets

        All widgets randomly lost after a reboot. Won't restore from backup. This is the second time in a week. Relatively new user... will have to abandon launcher if not resolved. Takes way too much time to set up the widget set I use.

          • OneNote\Google Keep, etc.

            Replace wunderlist with onenote or add it and google keep. google apps integration and support will increase market share.

                      • launcher scrolls back to home screen when quitting any app by pressing home button

                        one OnePlus 3T oreo exiting out of any app by using home button also scrolls back the launcher to home screen. the app should exit but the launcher shouldn't scroll back to home screen on single home button press. this problem is not present on my Samsung s7 nougat. so it seems a phone dependent bug for ms launcher.

                          The wallpapers provided by default and from bing are pretty low res and therefore a bit useless to me.

                                    • Bing Daily Wallpaper Does Not Dowload Nor Change Automatically Anymore

                                      I am using Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge Android version 7.0.0 and the Bing Daily Wallpaper used to automatically download and change everyday on my home and lock screen. For at least a month now, possibly longer, it no longer works. I have no setting to set it to download automatically, and I have to download the Bing Wallpaper manually and set it to be the wallpaper. Please fix or I will stop using Microsoft launcher. On a side note, Bing Daily Wallpaper still works on my Samsung Galaxy 4 tablet using Android 4.4.2
