  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 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.

  3. one ui takes over

    when closing all apps, one ui takes over until I push the home key, despite the fact that Microsoft launcher is set as the default launcher.

  9. gestos

    Hola, Recientemente estoy usando Microsoft Launcher, y me encanta, todo va bien, solo una cosa, la navegación por gestos no va bien, se traba, a veces no se ve la ventana de alguna app.
    también el gesto de retroceder que es deslizar los bordes izq y der al interior, no actual al estar en el menú, impidiendome crear una pantalla flotante sin antes estar en una app dentro.
    me gustaría que lo arreglaste, es lo único que le falta ha todo lo demás va Perfecto.
    Gracias.

  10. screen blink / refresh when evening home screen

    when entering home screen by leaving an app and quickly trying to open another app, it won't open. Instead, the screen darkens for about a millisecond not responding. after that apps can be opened normally.
    this happens when using Microsoft launcher as default (on pixel 5, Android v11)

  12. home swipe

    When at the home screen, if you swipe to the left or right, then up or down without releasing, the slide animation stops halfways, because it opens the menus corresponding to the swipe down or up gestures. Doing this let's you see half of the icons in one page and the other half of the next page at the same time. This is not a big deal because it's a bit tricky to get and you can fix it by swiping left or right, but I still think it's an oversight that should be fixed to have a more polished…

  15. Glance fails to show

    Every so often the glance feed will just fail to show anything, and the only solution is to completely restart the Launcher

  16. Microsoft Launcher refuses to stay as default launcher on my Alcatel 1SE.

    While using my new Alcatel 1 SE, Microsoft Launcher exits and my phone reverts to the standard Home Launcher many times a day, often when I exit my browser (Brave or Edge.). Microsoft Launcher is set as the default and has all permissions required.

  17. Home screen rotation

    Home screen Rotation doesn't restore to landscape after unlocking the screen, if the device was locked (screen turned off) in the landscape mode (device standing/lying on the side).

  20. Home screen layout collapsing in on itself

    My home screen will appear as though it's height is about 1/3 the normal size but the icons and folders remain normal size so are all on top of each other. This happens when I open my phone from the folded state. It's a flip phone. Motorola Razer. Started about 2 or 3 weeks ago.
