MIUI Launcher: These are the new features
Users using Xiaomi software sometimes struggle with various options and tweaks. Numerous settings can sometimes seem confusing, and in today's article we will gradually explain all the known but also interesting functions that are part of the MIUI Launcher extension.
If you want to try the latest version of MIUI Launcher on your Android device, you can download it from this link. Remember that if you want to install mobile applications outside the Play Store, you must enable this option in the settings of your Android smartphone.
The home screen is the initial screen with icons of your favorite applications. Similar to other graphics add-ons, it supports basic customization functions.
This mode will allow you to edit your screens more easily. You can mark several applications at once, you can organize your icons by shaking the device, and you can also get to the menu for widgets, themes or wallpapers. You can invoke this mode by holding down an empty space on the home screen or using the "pinch to zoom" gesture.
MIUI Launcher settings
You can also find this menu in the aforementioned editing mode. There are quick settings for icons, transition effects or alignment, as well as going to advanced MIUI settings, labeled "More".
This quick setting will allow you to change the animation when you scroll between pages on your home screen.
Set default screen
Thanks to this option, you can choose the screen you want to have set as default or "homemade". By default, it's the far left screen, but it just depends on your preferences.
Do not display text
This setting will hide the name of the applications and leave only their icons.
Home screen layout
You can also customize the app grid on your home screen. You can choose between a 4×6 icon layout or a 5×6 icon layout.
Filling cells of non-installed applications
This feature automatically rearranges your icons every time you uninstall an app. You no longer have to think about their arrangement.
Lock the home screen layout
When you enable this option, you will not be able to make layout changes on the home screen, such as adding new icons, removing icons, moving icons, etc.
You can find this option in the full MIUI Launcher settings, after clicking on the mentioned menu called "More". In the menu, you can choose the default launcher for your smartphone, which you will appreciate especially if you use more than one.
The home screen can take two forms. The first one is a screen without a menu with applications. All icons are available on individual screens.
This feature turns off or on the app vault page that is on the home screen.
A very important setting is the animation speed. This will affect the speed of starting or closing the application. However, this option may not be supported by all Android devices.
With this setting, you have a choice of several types of control elements of the system itself. It can be gestures or standard 3 buttons in different layouts.
You can also customize the icons. Namely, their display style and display size.
Animations of global icons
This option turns icon animations on or off in third-party apps, if those apps support it.
Organize recent apps
The menu of recent applications may also have a different display. The display can be vertical or horizontal.
Display memory status
This option enables or disables the RAM indicator in the recent apps section.
Blur app preview
Blurring the preview will make it possible to protect any personal data displayed in the menu of recent applications, which you will appreciate, for example, in public.
MIUI Launcher supports two kinds of widgets. These are older, classic extensions in the form of icons or shortcuts, as well as newer ones with support for interactive elements for applications, designed especially for newer devices. However, there is also an option to unlock these widgets for older devices as well.
Part of the graphic superstructure or extensions are also locked functions. To unlock them, you need to root the device, which we recommend only to experienced users. However, the SipolloMOD package that you can find can help you in the following link.
