Does the Microsoft Launcher work well on the Fold 4?

Are there any other recommended launchers that are better than the stock version?

My personal opinion and experience, there isn't any better launcher than the stock launcher until other launchers can deal with the 2 screens separately like the stock one does.

Nova launcher probably is the best but not for the fold. Stock is best option for the fold but you need a third party app by Samsung called goodlock to make it decent. For some reason Samsung can't just put the features of goodlock in the launcher. Most people that don't explore the forums don't know about goodlock. I also like using the task bar on bottom screen now and that only works with stock launcher.

Niagra launcher works good on the fold, developer designs it to work with the fold, and large screens, but it's a basic launcher. Forget about widgets which is why I don't use it anymore, but it does work good.

So, I tried stock with Good Lock, and while I can now fit everything I want, (Due to Good Lock allowing more grid space), thete is still a bunch of the screen just not filled out, and the font on my widgets is so small, as to be virtually unreadable.

Pics are from the same device taken just now.

The unfilled area for stock cannot be filled no matter where you try to place the widget, or how you size it.

Unless you care about having a different layout on the front and inside screens, Nova is orders of magnitude better than Stock IMHO.
