    • backups do not save the opacity and blur settings. when I restore from a backup, those settings are not restored.

      I have backed up my settings, but when I go to restore them the capacity and blur settings for the homepage are not restored from a backup, they seem to be set back to the default.

        • When creating a backup, it says, "This will replace your earlier backup with a new backup." That is not true.

          Why do you need to scare me like that? :)

          Microsoft Launcher does NOT erase my previous backups on OneDrive, and I like it that way. I have lots of storage on OneDrive, so I want to keep an archive of all my past launcher backups. So, just don't say that you're going to replace my previous backup. That's not what happens when backing up to OneDrive.

              • Please allow us to name our backups or add comments or descriptions

                There are many reason why it would help me to see the name of a backup instead of just the date when I got to restore. For example, I use the same Microsoft account with multiple devices, so I prefer different icon layouts and whatnot on each of those devices. Another reason is switching my whole layout based on mood. Finally, Microsoft Launcher has been crashing on me. So, restoring different layouts could help me figure out what the problem is.

                    • Failed to restore my backup

                      I made a backup in the cloud, I also made a local one, and I'm sure everything was fine when I made the backup. When I reboot my phone, some of the apps and widgets disappeared. No problem: I've got the two backups available. I tried to restore from the cloud. What happened is that (even if my apps and icons were okay) all my widgets were misplaced! Some of them missing, and others duplicated. I tried to restore from local storage. The same happened again and again!

                      I tried to delete all the app data of the launcher. When…

                            Ever since the latest update, the backup feature doesn't work. I click backup and nothing happens. I check the cloud and there is no backup.
