  5. Won't be able to backup to cloud after changing Microsoft account password.

    If Microsoft account password gets changed while it's connected to the launcher, I will not be able to enter the new password to backup my launcher settings. The only way will be reinstalling the app or deleting its data to reconnect the account. This is a very annoying bug.

  11. failed to get file list

    when trying to restore a backup I get the error message "failed to get file list" even though my account has several backups.

    I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but the issue persists.

  13. 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).

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  20. 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.
