  5. gesture navigation doesn't work properly in portrait and landscape mode.

    my device currently run on android 11, for navigation purpose I prefer gesture navigation i.e swipe up for home, and swipe left or right for back. If I play a video on YouTube or on any other app sometimes the gesture navigation doesn't work, like if I swipe up, left or right nothing works, also while playing a video on YouTube in landscape mode sometimes I am unable to touch the other button shown for the purpose of managing the video quality or zoom in, or zoom out.

  7. Need to tap app icon twice to open

    Recently I have been noticing an issue where I sometimes need to tap an app icon twice for the app to open. On the first tap, the phone screen will briefly flash, then a second tap will launch the app.  Below is a screen recording demonstrating the issue - from my home screen, I tap the Edge icon, there is a brief visible flash, then I tap the Edge icon a second time and it opens:

  8. How to access recents, normally in stock android, swipe up and hold is to go to recents. In microsoft launcher it is not working.

    Atleast this app should tell me, how to use gestures and show me a warning the gestures are different or not compatible with Microsoft launcher.

  10. after the update of Galaxy Note 20 (from Android 10 to 11), I found some ERROR with the swipe gesture for switching the latest app change.

    I have used this launcher very well, with no problem.
    It is very convenient with user friendly interface.
    However, after the update of Galaxy Note 20 (from Android 10 to 11), I found some ERROR with the swipe gesture for switching the latest app change. It sometime either becomes slow or stops.

  11. Al dar doble toque en la pantalla para apagar aparece por un segundo la pantalla de bloqueo. Esto no sucede en el launcher nativo.

    Al dar doble toque a la pantalla se laguea por un segundo y aparece la pantalla de bloqueo y después se apaga. Esto no sucede en el launcher de inicio nativo de mi Galaxy. Al dar doble toque se apaga sin ningún problema pero con el launcher Microsoft se laguea y aparece la pantalla de bloqueo x un segundo. También he notado q al cerrar aplicaciones y regresar a home se lague o tarda un segundo en cargar los iconos de las aplicaciones. Es muy molesto.

  16. swipe gesture interpreted as a tap and hold

    swiping down or up on the home screen is often incorrectly interpreted as a tap and hold. Please allow changing the tap and hold gesture so that it does nothing, or increase the time threshold for the hold so that it doesn't get triggered accidentally if the phone lags or something. This happens to me several times a day. Thanks!

  17. double tap to sleep problem

    Hi. In android 11 with one ui 3 (samsung s20 plus), you can activate the double tap function to sleep (not say lock). When using Microsoft launcher this gesture does not work, it is not in Microsoft launcher gesture list. Can you introduce it? it would be great to keep using Microsoft launcher. Thanks!

  19. Not all shortcuts are available for swipe up gestures for last two versions. Earlier all shortcuts were available, now only a few are.

    Earlier there were a lot of shortcuts available to choose for swipe gesture. Now for last two versions only some of the shortcuts are available.

  20. Navigation bar on Motorola G9

    I have just updated from the Motorola G7 Play to the G9 Play.
    On the G7 the navigation worked brilliantly.
    On the G9 it works on the Moto launcher but on the Microsoft Launcher it has just one function - the upward swipe reduces the app to its icon. It seems that app is not closed but just minimised.
    Is this a known problem?
