      • Unable to use quick actions when Home Screen is locked

        The quick option shortcuts (ie: New Tab or New InPrivate Tab on Edge) don't work if the Home Screen is locked. These should still function regardless of the locked home screen setting.

        I want to be able to use these shortcuts but not risk moving my icons around.

            • When you add an app to home screen the first app that you add will always go to the top left corner even if a widget already is placed

              When you add an app to home screen the first app that you add will always go to the top left corner even if a widget already is placed there. Other apps will go to home screen normally "respecting" where widget is placed at.

                                • Occasionally the home screen freezes, and is unresponsive until restart. Physical buttons still function.

                                  Occasionally the home screen freezes and is unresponsive until restart. physical buttons still function, and you can switch apps back to previous ones without issue, just unable to launch new ones, or scroll between home screens.

                                        • the launcher keeps creating an empty homescreen page even though I have deleted it many times.

                                          Every time I go to the homescreen and try to bring up the app list by swiping up, it brings up first an empty home screen that I did not create and I have to swipe up again to get the complete app list.
