Installed Brave a few weeks ago.
A few teething things - like the desktop icon disappearing, and the application not appearing in windows apps.
In short I’ve tried re-installing - this temporarily works okay - The profile is preserved. The app appears in windows “Programs and Features” list, bit after a while is dissapears. Feels like the install is incomplete somehow, and/or the updater/something runs post install and breaks the installation.
How can this issue be reproduced?
2. check it appears in “Programs and Features”
3. invoke it - works fine
4. exit & invoke again / wait
5. It slightly breaks the installation
5a. The desktop icon will disappear, (though the installation is still there and can be invoked using the ‘exe’ in “C:\Program Files (x86)\BraveSoftware\Brave-Browser\Application”
5b. There will be no app for web browser in windows’ “Default Apps”, if you set Brave to be the default.
5c. No Brave app entry under the windows “Start” menu
Brave should be an installed app and can be the default for Windows Web Browser
