    • Folder icon does not update when contained apps are changed

      When I change the apps that are in a folder, the image of the folder on the home page does not update. For example, I have Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube in a folder. I switch it so Hulu is the first app in the list, but the folder icon still shows Netflix as the first app. The problem this creates is when I try to open the folder and open the app quickly, I "see" Netflix as the first app on the icon, so I hit the first app quickly, which actually opens Hulu.

      • When I go to a folder I've created and try to use the "Add apps..." option, it doesn't list the apps that are recently. Installed.

        When attempting to add apps to a folder using the "Add apps" menu item, the list presented doesn't let you add apps that are in the rscently installed section.

        • Changing icons (shape, vertical or horizontal, rows columns etc) for App Folders is missing from settings.

          in Launcher settings and in the actual app folder itself with the top right three dots where you can change and edit the folder, neither of them are allowing me to change the rows columns or icon sizes and change whether I want to vertical or horizontal scroll. No bueno, Please fix ASAP.

              • clicking inside a folder returns to home rather than should do to app drawer

                clicking on any part of the screen inside a folder sometimes goes to home and sometimes to app drawer. should be consistent and go to app drawer.

                  • Folder icon shows applications that have been removed

                    Folder icon still shows applications that have since been removed. I don't know what triggers the recomputation of the folder icon, but it's clearly not working.

                        Icon positioning in app folder is offset downwards for no reason. I can fix this by deleting and recreating the folder.

                                • Dragging app icon out of folder makes it stick to the screen

                                  I created a folder but I wanted to drag an app icon out of it but I did it quickly and released it on the dock. After letting the icon go, it stuck to the screen, not moving away even when I opened a folder or the launcher settings or switched apps (it was only visible when I was on the home screen). After restarting the launcher, the icon went away.

                                  • Microsoft Launcher loses folder app shortcuts after reboot

                                    I have a number of folders on my home screen. Every time I restart my phone, some of the app shortcuts go missing from the folders. It's usually the same ones each time, and appears to be the ones I added most recently. The apps themselves are all on the SD card I have installed.

                                    I suspect that when Microsoft Launcher starts, Android is still uploading its list of apps from the SD card and so they appear to have been removed from the phone. However, as they haven't been, I have to go through each folder and re-add the…

                                      • Not all folders are updated with new format/layout

                                        Format and background is not updated for all folders when changing setting. Not even after restarting the Launcher.
