          • Folder icons not updating

            After applying an icon pack, the icons update everywhere except in folders on my home screen. I restarted Microsoft Launcher via its settings but no change. If I create a new folder then the icons are correct but I should not have to recreate my folders each time I change an icon pack. Hoping this is an easy fix as I like your app.

              Moving the home scren icon size slider back and forth shrinks icons until they are invisible.

                  • Icon size setting

                    In the settings (personalisation of home screen), when attempting to adjust icon size, the live "sample" onscreen does not behave correctly. At every change the sample icons get one notch smaller, irrespective of what size change is actually requested.

                      • Default Map App setting isn't working

                        Even though the Default Map App setting in Microsoft Launcher is set to Waze, Cortana opens Google Maps when getting driving directions.
                        Note that Waze’s supported links are:
                        • maps.google.com
                        • assistant-maps.google.com

                        • Home screen customize app icons setting is broken

                          The icon preview keeps shrinking every time I change a setting. Eventually the Launcher becomes unstable and requires a reset.

                          • Updating to latest dogfood crashed

                            I was updating to latest dogfood version today and it failed. Ended up in state where it would prompt to load ms launcher or Samsung. If I chose Ms launcher it would crash. I ended up having to uninstall completely and reinstall which is first time this has happened. BTW you have no update/install category

                              • Add rotate screen toggle please... It's a lot of time I am waiting for that option every release but no yet...

                                I love Arrow Launcher but I am using Nova Launcher only for that option that is missing in Arrow Launcher till now...
                                If it is possible adding that option to toggle screen rotation also in landscape mode, I think that this launcher is a good option to Nova Launcher.
                                I hope with this suggestion I can contribute to improve this beautiful launcher!
                                Bye

                                • accessibility

                                  I'm using the Microsoft Launcher on Note 8 on Oreo. Recently, I've been asked to go to Accessibility to turn on permission for Launcher when I use gestures to bring up recent apps. Not sure what I've done to trigger it to turn off.

                                  Other apps that have the permission turned on do not exhibit the same behaviour. Seems like Launcher is the only one. Previously I didn't notice such behaviour.

                                  Please assist. Thanks!

                                  • android auto regularly fails and radio and phone have to be restarted. NOT FIT FOR PURPOSE. IT IS SUPPOSED TO SUPPORT HANDS FREE DRIVING.

                                    fingerprint option disappears and reappears regularly. Worst phone I have ever owned and most expensive. Or is the software ?

                                        • restart your device to see your new resolution

                                          I frequently prompted to "restart your device to see your new resolution." How do I fix this?
