  1. Android-10 gesture mode doesn't work with the launcher

    Use a device with android 10 (pixel or nokia 9)
    Go to settings - > sytem - > gestures and select gesture mode.
    Set now the Microsoft Launcher as default Launcher

    Expected:
    I still can use Gesture to navigate around

    Actual:
    Android switch the navigation mode back to the bottom bar navigation

  2. Home screen icons are way small now even when set on large after last update.

    Icons sizing is shrunk after recent update. Even when set to large they are half or less the size the were before the update. Update changed something bad.

  3. Microsoft Launcher deleted all my phone screens. all my apps and widgets are missing.

    how can I keep my existing homescreen , apps and widgets and run Microsoft Launcher? I want an app that will connect my phone and PC without changing the phone. Microsoft Launcher killed my ability to use my phone as it was. It is not functioning as an app but takes over the phone entirely.

  7. Home screen icon size stuck on smallest

    Perhaps 95% of the time the icon size slider can't be moved off smallest
    This is on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.
    Setting row or column count to any number makes no difference. My preferred counts are 5x5.
    Portrait or landscape mode makes no difference either.
    Occasionally, restarting the tablet fixes the issue.

  8. long pressing on apps on the homescreen is inconsistent

    when you long press on a homescreen app that is in either the furthest column to the left or right, the long press menu frequently only appears for half a second before disappearing, whereas long press functionality is perfectly fine for apps that aren't on the edge of the homescreen panel

  13. Touch

    ever since the latest update, touch seems to be very buggy. sometimes you have to tap an icon more than once to launch an app or open a folder

  19. After latest update some folder names showing as 'Untitled' on home screens.

    Even though they have valid names, some folders are now showing 'Untitled Folder' on the home screen. Tapping the folder to show the popup contents then displays the name correctly.
