Brave window locates poorly on multi-screen displays when laptop moves to new location


Windows 10 on ASUS laptop with Targus docking station & 2 external monitors.

I have multiple displays on a Targus docking station in my office and at home. They have different resolutions at the different locations (1920x1080 vs. 1920x1200). If I go to an intermediate location I just have the main laptop display (1920x1080).

Brave normally runs on one of my external monitors. I normally just put the laptop to sleep when moving locations (close lid). When I get to the new location with no external monitors the Brave window will not be visible - like it expects to still be on the external monitor. Can’t move it to the main laptop display. If I move to the other docking station the Brave window is half off the display, can’t see the top so can’t just move it. When I try to resize from the side, it does move down inside the display area.

I would suggest that Brave needs to keep track of the main display, number of displays, resolution of displays and location on screen, and figure out if any of that changes, to at least default back to the main display.
