Whether you’re looking to use a third-party app or you’re just looking to add some features to your Windows Phone, there are several different ways to customize the Microsoft launcher on your device. In this article, we’ll walk you through how to add widgets, change the theme, and turn on or off your Notification Badge.
Change the theme
The new Microsoft launcher app has been updated with landscape support and a couple of improvements to the home screen. However, this latest update also contains a few bugs and crashes.
The app is built on a new codebase and includes numerous performance improvements. In addition, users can customize the appearance of their apps with the option to change the color of icons, backgrounds, and more. And, new wallpapers are available every day.
You can even tweak the blur and opacity of your home screen. As you can see from the screenshots, Microsoft Launcher lets you select from three different themes. These include light, dark, and transparent.
Microsoft Launcher also comes with a variety of predefined settings. To access the customizations, you must first open the app’s settings. Here, you will be able to configure your feed, feed widgets, and other gestures. Besides, you will be able to specify the wallpaper that you will use daily.
The Microsoft launcher is a free Android app that replaces the default launcher. It gives you a customized look and allows you to add widgets. You can customize the theme of the app and change the color scheme. Also, you can customize the widgets and the bottom row of the dock.
The Microsoft Launcher offers users a personalized feed for top news, recent activities and important events. Additionally, it displays recent documents, calendar appointments, sticky notes, and To Do lists. Users can choose teams to follow and customise their widgets.
Widgets are small cards that appear when you open the Microsoft Launcher. Each card has a corresponding name under it. These small cards can display dynamic content from different apps.
Microsoft Launcher has an expandable dock and you can choose the size of the app icon. It also features an auto-update feature. You can enable or disable it. If you want to install Microsoft apps, tap the “Microsoft folder” to see them.
Turn on Notification Badge
When you use Microsoft Launcher on your Android smartphone, you can choose which apps have notification badges. Notification badges show you how many notifications have been sent or received in that app. They can also be seen on your app icons.
Notification badges in Microsoft Launcher can be turned on or off by using the Dock section of the app. The dock section is where you’ll find your search bar, the important icons, and the icons for the apps you’ve set up to show on your home screen. Using this section is easy.
To enable the badges, you first need to open the Dock section. From the menu, you can select a specific app or apps that should display badges. For example, you can choose to turn on badges only for Gmail and not for Facebook. You can also set the number of badges you want to display.
In addition to the notification badges, you can also choose how your phone notifications should be displayed. You can either have alerts show up as a pop-up window or as sound.
Turn off Cortana
If you want to disable Cortana on your PC, you will need to follow a few simple steps. Cortana is an intelligent digital assistant, which can be used through a dedicated app, or through the Windows 10 Microsoft Launcher. The launcher version is less powerful than the dedicated app, but it can be useful for some users.
If you want to disable Cortana in the Microsoft Launcher, you can do it in the Windows settings. It’s also possible to turn off suggestions, which will make the digital assistant useless. However, it’s not a good idea to do this. This can cause your system to be unstable.
You can also change the value of the DWORD “AllowCortana” to zero. This can affect the way that Cortana processes are handled in Task Manager, but you’ll need to be careful not to let this affect the entire computer.
Another method for turning off Cortana on your PC is to open up the registry editor. By using this procedure, you can turn off Cortana more thoroughly. For this, you’ll need to access HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and the corresponding HKCU directory.
