  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.

  2. Lose icons after update

    Last two updates seem to have broken this, was working fine before. If I associate an icon to a folder containing apps on the home screen, they get replaced by default of small versions of icons for the apps contained within. Really annoying as it has taken me

  4. Home screen icons are way small now even when set on large after last update.

    Icons sizing is shrunk after recent update. Even when set to large they are half or less the size the were before the update. Update changed something bad.

  11. After latest update some folder names showing as 'Untitled' on home screens.

    Even though they have valid names, some folders are now showing 'Untitled Folder' on the home screen. Tapping the folder to show the popup contents then displays the name correctly.

  14. Update added un-removable horizontal margins around home screen

    I wish I could include two screenshots to demonstrate. To reproduce, enter the home screen settings under personalization, and then icons. Set it to 5 columns, 7 rows, large size - I am not sure if it happens with other layouts. Note that the left and rightmost icons are at or near the edge of the screen.

    Now look at your actual home screen. There's a good 200+ px of completely unnecessary padding at the left and right edges - it also results in the icons being as close together as they would be with 6 columns. I've had the…
