  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.

  5. I have to disable the Launcher to be able to change the lockscreen

    When I change the lockscreen, I have to disable the Launcher because I can't select any wallpaper to the lockscreen (it appears Microsoft Launcher telling you to change the wallpaper of the start page and no option to change the wallpaper of the lockscreen)

  13. works well, mostly pleased, but SMS messages are sent via WhatsApp; the notification page's reset and SMS options have no effect.

    SMS messages now sent via WhatsApp; the warning page's Reset and SMS options do not reconfigure.

  15. Android 9.0 Tap to Sleep

    The new Android version 9.0 added the feature to give launchers ability to simulate the power button for third-party launchers.

    This feature makes it so that the device doesn't require a pin when unlocked everytime.

    The Nova Launcher has integrated this into their Launcher and it works just as described.

    The Launcher asks for permission from Accessibility settings to do this.

    Here's the description from Nova Launcher app.

    "Accessibility
    Turn the screen off as if the power button
    was pressed. Requires Android Pie."

  19. About EMUI9's third-party desktop limit

    EMUI9 limits the use of third-party desktops, and developers need to apply to huawei for some kind of license to use it. Can we apply for it? I hope to be able to use Microsoft desktop on EMUI9 as well!
