Brave Brower (off screen laptop) Unable to Restore



Brave Browser OFF SCREEN
Unable to restore

Steps to Reproduce

Every time I turn lap-top on without connected to monitors:

  1. Turn on lap-top
  2. Open Brave (from taskbar)
  3. Brave opens off screen

Notes: When my laptop is connected at work to multiple monitors - Brave will open on one of the two monitors.
When laptop disconnected, it will never populate on laptop (always off screen)

Options that do NOT work:

  1. Shift-RightClick on Brave on taskbar - does NOT bring up minimize or move options (like Chrome or other programs)
  2. Windows Key - P = to switch monitors and then back to laptop - does NOT bring Brave back to main monitor.
  3. Restart Computer = does not seem to work.
  4. Alt-Tab = shows the Brave browser, but when selected will select off screen.
  5. Cascade = does not work (nor does stacking)

Actual result:

Expected result:

  1. Open on laptop monitor (or primary monitor)
  2. Shift-RightClick - should bring up minimize or move options (like other applications)
