  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

  3. 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.

  6. 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

  10. Feed

    The feed resets frequently. I add widgets and the next day the default layout is restored.

  14. Screen rotation

    In the Microsoft launcher settings, screen rotation is set to "on" and dimmed making it locked in that setting.

    Changing the Android "auto-rotate screen" setting on/off has no effect.

    I want to have my homescreen (that is controlled by microsoft launcher) never rotate... Previous versions of Microsoft launcher did not rotate.

  15. User Interface Messed up!

    Left my phone alone for a few hours, when I picked it up again, I couldn't access my app drawer and tapping and holding revealed a massive glitch where the row of settings only had an upside down "choose wallpaper” text [see attached screenshot if it lets me upload one]

    I fixed it by opening the feed settings, opening recents tapping and holding on the icon, going to App Info, and forcing the Launcher to stop.

  16. the home screen 'bing'' image is split on my screen when in Landscape. The bottom of the picture appears at the top of the screen.

    when my Tab 4 is turned on its side in landscape, the "bing" background picture is split with the bottom of the picture at the top of the screen and the rest of the picture below.
    what is causing this?

  20. homescreen icon size can't be changed to one point above default at 5x5 grid after we revert back to 5x5 from some other configuration

    icon size can't be changed to one point above default ( in middle of Largest and Default) after we change the grid size from 5x5 to something else and then go back to 5x5. it always goes back to default icon size
