    My BlackBerry Launcher often crashes and isn't responding.

    Can I uninstall/reinsall? Not sure what it does and if I would lose anything if I uninstalled it but it seem important lol

    Hello Try this..
    Clear cache, and reset device right after. (Just a regular power down reset) see if this helps!
    Good luck

    You didn't have to clear data for the google search bar. It's just a widget that you can drag back on the screen.

    Open your App tray. Go to widgets, find the google one. Drag it to the screen. See below.

    PS.. You posted a pic. It won't let me do that on the forum app. It says.. Please check your networks and try again. What do I check?

    Not too sure on the forum app. I use the full CB app. Maybe something in the settings or maybe someone who uses the forum app can help.

    Kind of off topic but I recently switched to Microsoft's launcher. It's really smooth.

    Do keyboard shortcuts work? If not, that would be a no go for me. The shortcuts add so much efficiency and speed in my opinion. Cleaner home screens as well.

    Nope. Better off just sticking with BlackBerry launcher.

    You can pin your most used apps into a two level dock. It's really clean too. Then again I've never really used the keyboard shortcuts so it might be slower. Launcher crashing-screenshot_20171203-193654.png

    Agreed. Switched from BlackBerry launcher to Microsoft a few months ago. Noticeably less lag, better performance. Worth a try.
