  4. Restore backup

    Restoring a backup is not working because although the app version in Play Store is same but the About screen shows two different versions on my old phone (Infinix Zero 5 Pro/Android 7) and new phone (POCO X3 NFC/Android 10).

  5. Latest Version - Restore Backup

    I'm trying to restore a backup I made but when I do so, it says I need the latest version of Microsoft Launcher. Play store reports no updates. When you check for updates in Launcher, it says I'm running the most recent version. However, backup and restore reports I'm several versions behind. This has never happened before.

  7. Failed to create a Cloud Backup

    I can't perform a cloud backup. The screen keeps loading for hours, and nothing happens. To optimize, I tried to check only the option to save the existing settings in order to make the backup lighter, but it didn't work.

  11. unable to restore backup due to version

    I had to reset my phone, and backed up Launcher prior to doing so. I am now trying to restore from backup, but getting an error that I need to update the version. I pulled the latest from the Play store, but it still is an older version.

  12. I can't restore backup of settings as version of launcher on Android 11 is lower than version on 10.

    I am trying to migrate to new phone. Both have latest launcher. Point version on Android 11 is lower thank Android 10 so it won't allow restore of settings etc.

  15. apps vanish

    Apps manually added in homescreen disappear after the launcher crashes and phone restart and is replaced by the default apps set by launcher. Restoring my back ups doesn't solve it.

  17. Firefox links disappear

    I pinned links from mozilla Firefox as icons in folders on the homescreen.
    I backup the launcher in the cloud. When I restore it, all links in folders are gone.
    Super annoying.

  20. Dock not backing up properly to cloud storage

    If I back up my home screen to cloud storage, and I save my settings, and widgets only, (Not my wallpaper), and I restore the backup, the apps that I had in the dock before I restored the backup are mixed up, and many are missing, which means I have to rearrange my dock again.
