  1. Default search engine changes to Bing automatically

    The default search engine switches to Bing automatically even though I have it set to Google. I do not want to use Bing. Stop shoving it down my throat, please.

  4. widget scrolling

    When scrolling down on Outlook calendar widget, messages widget, or any other vertical list widget, it causes the microsoft launcher search page to be shown accidentally. A different touch gesture should trigger search or a check should be in place to not show search if a widget is being touched.

  5. Search bar not working.

    The search bar doesn't display results from contacts, files, messages, etc. This happened after the update. It only displays web results of the queries.

  6. Search on home screen still does not search! It only opens Bing.com.

    Using the search bar on the home screen only brings up the Bing website with nothing in the search field. It has been this way on the last several builds making it less than useless.

  9. keyboard won't go away after using search box to open an app

    when tapping in the search box, I type the app name that I am looking for. when I see the app I want, I tap the icon and the app launches but the keyboard remains up and I can't dismiss it. have to hit home button then go back into the app via app switcher to get the keyboard to dismiss.

  12. Microsoft Launcher search bar searches are not registering in Microsoft Rewards launcher search promotion.

    On both my wife's Pixel 2 and my Pixel 2 XL out Microsoft Launcher searches are not registering under the pertinent Launcher search promotion on the Microsoft Rewards dashboard, never moving from displaying 0/100. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling Microsoft Launcher, sign in out and back into Microsoft Account, restarting phone.

  13. Search bar

    Search bar style doesn't remember the setting. It always reverts back to the circular style.

  17. Search bar shows search history even though in "Search Suggestions" I turned off search history. This used to work as expected. Not anymore.

  18. Search engine choice not persisting

    Why does the launcher keep changing the search engine to Bing, even though I have explicitly selected Google? It's very annoying to have it change it so many times and I still can't tell why it randomly defaults to Bing.

  19. "showing XX search results" notification hides the on-screen keyboard while typing in the launcher's search bar.

    when I perform a search in the launcher, the pop-up "showing xx search results" hides part of the keyboard and is very annoying and not useful at all. I have to wait until it disappears before I can proceed with the search

  20. showing results

    Phone: OnePlus 8 Pro, Android 10, OxygenOS 10.5.11 IN11BA
    Issue: whenever I start typing in the search bar from MS launcher, automatically a certain number of search results are fetched. In the lower part of the screen, above the keyboard, a notification is shown , displaying "X search results have been found".
    it keeps staying there on top of other apps ,for a certain amount of time,no matter what I do.
