  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 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.

  3. 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.

  8. on Galaxy S10 the default Launcher button every time I press asks for default. if I check what is default its set to MS Launcher.

    every time I press the launcher home button on the Samsung Galaxy S10 it asks me which one to use, the One UI home or Microsoft Launcher.

  9. Launcher freezes when awaking from sleep

    When turning screen on, sometimes the home screen is frozen. I can use Android's pull-down menu to open settings, then hit the home button and everything works fine again. This seems to happen in waves. most days are fine, but some days it happens frequently. When this happens, the time on the home screen shows the last time the phone was used. Clearing the cache partition does not resolve the issue. I also excluded the launcher from battery optimization. Nothing I have tried seems to help.

  17. High mobile data usage

    I have the To Do widget, the Outlook inbox, and MSN Weather widgets pinned to my launcher's homepage, but the data usage in the foreground is spending 88MB in one week. I urgently need your feedback since this is using data much more than expected.

  18. Lag while going back to home screen

    I have been experiencing this issue since a long time. Every now then (not always though), when I go back to home screen street using some apps, the launcher lags. It takes around 10secs to load the home screen during this time. I have set this MSLauncher as default launcher, but still I'm experiencing this!!

    I'm using Redmi Note 7 with sufficient memory and RAM left.
    I was experiencing this with my old phone, Moto G4 Plus too...

  20. Padding resets on app update

    Whenever an app updates, it is has a widget that I'm using, the padding setting for that widget will reset to the default value. This makes apps, like the Outlook dogfood app, really painful to use because I am constantly turning padding off.
