  1. Microsoft Launcher deleted all my phone screens. all my apps and widgets are missing.

    how can I keep my existing homescreen , apps and widgets and run Microsoft Launcher? I want an app that will connect my phone and PC without changing the phone. Microsoft Launcher killed my ability to use my phone as it was. It is not functioning as an app but takes over the phone entirely.

              • huawei gesture navigation issues

                On new huawei devices such as the mate 20 pro, the system wide gesture navigation is not smooth. especially the swipe up to go home and the swipe and hold for recent apps.

                    • Home screen slow to refresh when unlocking phone

                      Microsoft Launcher updated on my Samsung Galaxy S7 over the weekend to the latest version. Ever since the update, when I unlock my phone, I have to wait 3-5 seconds to see my home screen. If I had an app open already, there is no lag, my phone unlocks straight into the app. But if no apps are open and it unlocks to my home screen, there is a 3 to 5 second lag where I cannot see any icons or widgets, just the wallpaper.

                        • When I am using Chrome and want to add a shortcut to homepage; I can't find the shortcut.

                          When I am using Chrome (not sure about other browsers) and click the "add shortcut to homepage" button, it looks like the process is carried out but the shortcut doesn't appear on my homepage.

                              There is literally an extra row at the bottom of the home screen that you cant use, why not allow people with bigger screens take advantage of that space?

                                        • Home screen not responsive after home button

                                          Very frequently when switching to the home screen after hitting home button the home screen would be blank without any icons or widgets, I can't swipe right to left but can pull notifications and open the app drawer. Locking a d unlocking doesn't fix it. What fixes it reliabily is to open the app drawer and close it. While that's simple e ought it's really annoying. I'm using a Note 9.
