  1. Automatically removes itself from the default launcher. I have to set it as the default launcher again and again.

    Sometimes the microsoft laubcher remives itself from the default launcher. Then i have to again open the launcher app from the app drawer, long tap the home screen and set it as the default launcher. This happens frequently and is annoying and time consuming.

          On Chinese Huawei phones, Microsoft Launcher cannot be set to be the default launcher. It looks like it needs to be on a white list.

              • Launcher turns off my home WiFi connection.

                My phone tells me that Launcher is responsible for the turning off of my WiFi which exposes me to increased costs from my carrier. I don't want it changing my WiFi settings.

                            • Default assistance app keeps changing back to Google on Huawei Mate 10 pro

                              I have launcher set as default assistance app, but it keeps changing to google. Is this a launcher issue or google? It can change within an hour of setting, sometimes a couple of days.

                                        Trying to remove from my phone, cannot access my data. I can only connect to wifi. It changed my whole phone and I don't like it.
