        • Search Bar Suggestion scrolling too fast

          I'm starting to see suggestion of tending topics in the Search bar, which is nice, but sometimes it scrolls through 5+ suggestions under a second - the timing of this got a bit out of whack :)

              • When I start camera from the windows search box, green color is appearing on the screen.

                When I start camera from the search box, green color is appearing on the screen instead of outer objects and it is shaking continuously like in old TVs. But when I try selfie option using flip option it is fine. Please resolve this issue.

                • Phantom Keyboard

                  When I do an app search from the launcher search function there is a phantom keyboard when the app launches. This was prevalent on my Note 8 and Note 9. Both using Samsung or Swiftkey keyboards.

                          On both my wife's Pixel 2 and my Pixel 2 XL out Microsoft Launcher searches are not registering under the pertinent Launcher search promotion on the Microsoft Rewards dashboard, never moving from displaying 0/100. Tried uninstalling/reinstalling Microsoft Launcher, sign in out and back into Microsoft Account, restarting phone.

                            • Search applications is slow to show

                              At homescreen, pull down to show search, search for any applications in the device.
                              currently, look like the result of applications search will show after keywords search on the internet return the result, so sometimes, if the network is not good, it will make the applications search slow down to.
                              most of the time I use search function just to search applications in my device, so it should be top priority.

                                      • 华为手机虚拟键不显示

                                        华为手机搜索时候,虚拟键是纯白色,能起作用,但是看不到。如果可以,可以给您发送截图。

                                        • Search bar won't work properly.

                                          I have s7 edge oreo. When I use search bar to open YouTube. SwiftKey keyboard won't work until I tap mic button and tap search again. It's also same for Google maps.
