Duplicate windows in Task Switcher (Alt+ Tab)

When I open a brave window it shows 2 exact same brave windows in Alt+Tab, even if I’m having only 1 window open.

Image 1 showing I have 1 brave window open.

Image 2 showing 2 brave windows in Alt + Tab.

It really annoys when you’re multi tasking & brave shows 2 windows in Alt+Tab.
Please fix this.

I had this problem too. Since I couldn’t find the solution, I reverted to the old alt+tab format. I hope it will be resolved as soon as possible

Hello @Strawhat

Thank you for reaching out and sorry to hear you’re having trouble with Brave. Please try to open a new page using private mode or guest mode.

You can open a Guest Window by going to Main menu --> Open Guest window.

If that works, It could be related to an extension interfering with your profile, please try removing your extensions to see if it works properly. To Remove an Extension:

  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. At the top right, click Menu icon --> More tools --> Extensions.
  3. On to the extension you want to remove, click Remove.
  4. Confirm by clicking Remove.


  1. On your computer, open Brave.
  2. On your extensions toolbar, right-click the extension you would like to remove.
  3. Select Remove from Brave… from the context menu.

At last please try clearing cookies to see if this solves the issue:

  1. Click on the Menu icon in the top right, and go to Settings.
  2. Select Site Settings --> Cookies.

Let me know if that works and have a nice day!
