Please Install Brave To Proper Location


Installing software to whatever random location you want is very bad practice.
On Windows, Brave should be installed to:

C:\Program Files
C:\Program Files (x86)

Depending on whether its the 32bit or 64bit version.


Brave is currently installed to “%userprofile%\AppData\Local” since that is the folder that their backend muon has support for installation :slightly_smiling_face: I added a +1 to this issue to vote it up for you :wink:


Not installing to Program Files is asking to be detected as malware, and may prevent install completely in some environments.
Seems like an easy fix & unlikely to have repercussions.

The reason seems to be that Brave uses Squirrel installer.
There’s a religious war on GitHub which I don’t propose to get into.


This also prevents it from being installed for all users.
