[Closed] Tries to download brave.exe


Every time I start Brave it automatically goes to a download screen trying to do an update even though it is updated. I deleted the download history but this didn’t help/

I think you have same issue with this.


And this one.


Is it the same problem?


I believe so yes. And I’m using Win10 Pro


Update to 0.12.15 should be fixed this.

Are you open Brave from taskbar? If you still face it in latest version, I can suggest you to unpin Brave from taskbar > open latest version of Brave > then re-pin.


Thank you, this fixed it

I have been having the same issue since the most recent update. I have downloaded the file brave.exe once, but it keeps requesting that I do so every time I open brave rather than go to my home page.

Please fix this issue.

I have recommended Brave to many people because up until now, it has been seamless in it’s operation.


Hi @blessed_97471,

Are you using version 0.12.15? If you still face the issue, following these step may fixed it.
