  1. Android-10 gesture mode doesn't work with the launcher

    Use a device with android 10 (pixel or nokia 9)
    Go to settings - > sytem - > gestures and select gesture mode.
    Set now the Microsoft Launcher as default Launcher

    Expected:
    I still can use Gesture to navigate around

    Actual:
    Android switch the navigation mode back to the bottom bar navigation

  2. Home screen icon size stuck on smallest

    Perhaps 95% of the time the icon size slider can't be moved off smallest
    This is on a Samsung Galaxy Tab S5e.
    Setting row or column count to any number makes no difference. My preferred counts are 5x5.
    Portrait or landscape mode makes no difference either.
    Occasionally, restarting the tablet fixes the issue.

  4. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 - icons shrink after closing and reopening device

    Repro:
    install launcher,
    set icon size and font as big as possible with screen unfolded,
    Observe that the icons are reasonably sized,
    Fold screen closed,
    Unfold screen,
    Observe that icons are now extra tiny

    I need to manually reset icon size every single time I unfold the screen

  9. flash

    With Gesture Navigation on, on Android 11, when user swipes up on home screen to access app drawer, open an app and then swipe up home bar, the home page is correctly shown but the screen flashes where it feels like app drawer was closed behind the scene. If you were to open an app directly from home page and then swipe up home bar, the opened app my minimizes and home page is shown without any flash.

  11. opened settings became the wallpaper

    idk how to really describe it but it's really weird, i accidentally opened hotspot settings and when i went back to home, the hotspot settings interface thing is still there except the apps on the home screen are there too, I took a video of it here https://drive.google.com/file/d/18PhYP4T8gRpL--ECoERRfe1WzJWKqA/view?usp=drivesdk

    it went back to normal when I went to the hotspot settings and pressed home again

  12. Navigation swipes are ignored while the page change animation plays

    Reproduce: Have 2 normal home screen pages, and go to the Microsoft feed page thing all the way on the left. Quickly swipe to go right twice. The second swipe is ignored if the screen is still animating the first swipe.

  13. When I choose close all apps, it switches back to Google interface until I hit the home button again. Really annoying!

    When I select close all apps, it goes back to the Google launcher until I press the home button again.

  18. Can't delete empty page

    I can't delete empty page because there is no trash can icon at the top. Make home icon is there but it doesn't matter if it's home page or not. I have 2 pages in total, if add 1 more page i can delete 1 of the empty pages. But 1 empty page is always there and can't be deleted.

  20. Remove homescreen

    I can no longer remove a blank home screen. I have one active home screen and do not use the feed. I have now one blank home screen which I want to get rid of.
