              • News Categorization Algorithm

                Hello, 

                The issue is possibly with news categorization algorithm which is probably based only on headline! 

                Selecting the interest 'Lifestyle' showed a news article about Nicole Kidman's bikini design.

                Being considerate enough to switch that news interest option off still shows news article, highly likely based on the selection of 'sports' as an interest and the article headline containing a string 'sports' about Gweneth Paltrow's 'sports' themed swimwear! Seriously? That's how 'sports' news section going to be now? 

                Solution: The launcher itself being a curator of news to it's users, code a more robust algorithm to avoid these incidents of mismatching…

                  • I LOVE this launcher but there's an issue: the news on the feed. the page just closes when I'm reading. pretty annoying. Kindly fix this.

                    First off, I love this launcher. it's the best I've used so far but there's an issue that bugs me: When I'm reading the news on the feed it just closes with no warning, especially with long articles. mid way, it just closes and i have to look for the article, to open it up again. Its pretty annoying. pls fix this!!!

                      • Hello. Could you please include the news window under the "glance" section like it was before or offer the option of having it there?

                        Hello. Could you please include the news window under the glance section as it was before or offer the option of having it there? It is overwhelming on its own and there is just too much of different news all at once. It also consumes too much extra data now.

                                    News feed should scroll back to the top after not being used for several minutes or hours. Also, manually refreshing the news feed should scroll it back to the top.

                                      The news page remains where I last scrolled even after hours when I check the next time. There should be an easier way to scroll to top or reload

                                        • microsoft edge install "reminder" is intrusive in news - if i uncheck it, it comes back all the time - doesn't no mean no? To MS(N)

                                          The issue is in ms launcher - in news browsing - there us constantly popping up "suggestions" to install microsoft edge, if i uncheck it, thanks but no thanks, for now - it re-appear all the time.
                                          It is not just MS behaviour but ut is annoying and such little intrusive things could throw you off totally, from an otherwise great product.
                                          Greed is not that pretty.
