  1. Bing daily wallpaper lock screen

    Whenever I set both the home and lock screen to the Bing daily image, the lock screen never updates the next day, but the home screen does.

                            • BUG: When I lock the home screen layout I can no longer long-press on an app icon to access the app shortcuts.

                              App shortcuts appear when you long press an icon, for Uber it's addresses that appear, for OneNote it's the type of Note you want to add. If you lock your home screen which I would like to do so things don't shift around, the app shortcuts I'm trying to access are no longer available. I just see a pop-up saying my home screen is locked.
                              This is a bug and needs to be fixed.

                                • locking the home screen icons prevents you from accessing the app context menu

                                  The setting that allows me to lock my home screen to prevent accidental rearrangement of apps also prevents me from accessing app context menu normally accessed via long press. Having this context menu is very useful as a quick shortcut to the apps system page for uninstallation or accessing app settings. I think enabling the lock home screen setting should not prevent this context menu from appearing on long press.

                                  • Unable to set Bing's wallpapers as Lock screen background on Xiaomi Mi A1

                                    With the latest updates, on Xiaomi Mi A1 (Android 8.1) I need to manually change Bing's wallpapers every day on the home screen, because Microsoft Launcher doesn't do that automatically as it was supposed to do. And I cannot choose and set a wallpaper for the Lock screen anymore, either.

                                    Please, fix this.

                                      • can't make the fingerprint unlock work(it asks for password) if I lock screen with a Microsoft launcher gesture i. e. Swipe up>lock screen

                                        can't make the fingerprint unlock work(it asks for password) if I lock screen with a Microsoft launcher gesture i. e. Swipe up>lock screen

                                        in nova launcher there is an option to delay for 5seconds the locking of the screen in order for the fingerprint to work.

                                        any ideas?

                                        • Flash problem with turn off-on screen
