  1. Default search engine changes to Bing automatically

    The default search engine switches to Bing automatically even though I have it set to Google. I do not want to use Bing. Stop shoving it down my throat, please.

  2. Search on home screen still does not search! It only opens Bing.com.

    Using the search bar on the home screen only brings up the Bing website with nothing in the search field. It has been this way on the last several builds making it less than useless.

  3. Search engine choice not persisting

    Why does the launcher keep changing the search engine to Bing, even though I have explicitly selected Google? It's very annoying to have it change it so many times and I still can't tell why it randomly defaults to Bing.

  4. showing results

    Phone: OnePlus 8 Pro, Android 10, OxygenOS 10.5.11 IN11BA
    Issue: whenever I start typing in the search bar from MS launcher, automatically a certain number of search results are fetched. In the lower part of the screen, above the keyboard, a notification is shown , displaying "X search results have been found".
    it keeps staying there on top of other apps ,for a certain amount of time,no matter what I do.

  8. Search bar put launcher search result "notification" right over the keyboard! Help

    When I type in the search box I now get a "box" displaying how many items found in search right on my android keyboard. This is annoying. For example, it may say Microsoft launcher found 7search results.

  11. Search field only matches against search string that begin the word, not any part. E.g. search for 'dojo' doesn't return my app 'ClassDojo'

    Search field only matches against search string that begin the word, not any part. E.g. search for 'dojo' doesn't return my app 'ClassDojo' but a search for 'class' does.

  13. the search widget becomes uncentered

    I don't know the trigger but the search widget becomes misaligned on my home screen, shifting upwards within it's box. I can only fix it by toggling the padding.

  16. Double

    Double tap on search keywords highlights the entire search, not one word. Hugely frustrating.

    Steps :
    1. in search bar, type "Xbox pine games" and submit
    2. In resulting screen, realize that "pines" was autocomplete error, it signs have been "one", so double tap it to select it and correct it.

    Result : double tap selects the whole search string, not just the word. Fixing one word is super tedious.
    Expect: behave like every other edit control, and make double tap select a word.

  17. Search bar border

    Search bar widget has a white border around it. It ruins the nice, clean aesthetic of the launcher. It wasn't like this before. Please remove or at least make it optional.
    Thanks.
