Why can’t I use android 10 gesture in Microsoft Launcher?

Actually it is an OS limitation. Android 10 system initially do not allow enable gesture navigation when user set third party launcher as default launcher. According their announcement, they will gradually open the limitation in future updates, therefore, some devices may not support android 10 gesture with third-party launcher like MSL at the present. 

Please find more details in their announcement link https://android-developers.googleblog.com/2019/07/android-q-beta-5-update.html

Attach a screenshot from the above link for your easy understanding, too.
