Additional Information:

@abalkaff which OS that you use? Also, can you share the screenshot of the issue?

  1. BRAVE were installed under Windows 7 Pro (SP1)

  2. just a blank window popped-up

Same here. I have been trying many times to launch it and it constantly freezes.

@abalkaff thanks for the confirmation.

Can you try:

  1. Find the shortcut for Brave 0.62.x (generally on Desktop), right-click and select Properties from the context menu.
  2. Click into the “Target” field, and type --disable-gpu at the end of the path. Note that you must type this outside of the quotes with a space between the flag and quotes. It should look something like this:
  3. Click Apply then OK then open the modified shortcut you just created.
  4. Assuming this worked and you’re able to view Brave, open the main menu on the top-right
  5. Navigate to Settings --> Advanced --> System --> Hardware Acceleration
  6. Ensure this option is off. If not, toggle it off and relaunch:
  7. Now, return to the modified shortcut, remove the --disable-gpu flag from the Target path and launch Brave using that shortcut.
