          • On notched screens app interferes with notification area

            the MS launcher settings header and back button can't be accessed because they are shifted up into the notification area... Attempting access pulls down notifications instead

                      • Please turn off update notifications. Super annoying. I'll update Launcher when I want an update.

                        Can't figure out how to turn off update notifications. I'll update Launcher when I want an update. Will uninstall if I keep getting nagged.

                          • Unable to reset my password due to non receipt of Code by SMS.

                            I have been attempting to reset my password on my laptop for several days now without success because I have not received a code by SMS, on the rare occasion it did come it was after a minimum of a 6 hr wait by which time everything had expired. I submitted the emailed code at 6:55 am this morning. it is now 19:20 and I am still waiting for the SMS code!

                                    • SMS county is incorrect

                                      The notification badge for texts displays the wrong number. I have one unread text, but the badge shows four. I open the app, mark it as read, go back to the home screen. It now shows one unread. I open the app again, go back home, and the badge disappears.

                                      Some version of that has been occurring for the last week or so.
