Windows 7: New Browser Refuses to Open on Monitor 2

New Browser Refuses to Open on Monitor 2

I'm evaluating the Brave Browser as a replacement for IE 11 that will also work in Linux and, so far, I'm liking it but I'm having one very ANNOYING problem with it. I'm running three monitor and I do most of my work from the center (secondary) monitor. Brave, however, insists on opening in the primary monitor to my left so I have to drag it to the center monitor every time I load it.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get it to open up on the center monitor?

I'm sure you know that Brave is still in beta (they call it "release" rather than "beta"). Having said that, Brave is fast becoming my browser of choice whenever Firefox (with NoScript) doesn't work.

They finally fixed the very annoying (to me) problem of it opening non-maximized.

Perhaps you can find some helpful information here:

Lauren Wagner ("LaurenWags") works for Brave, and she would probably help you with this:

Curious. I had already posted on the community yesterday and had received a response to my post from Ms. Wagner when I dragged my ample asset out of bed this morning. So far, no joy but she has hasn't responded to my response yet.

Thanks for the response.

Maybe she is working on the issue for you, and therefore can't get back to you just yet!

I wasn't criticizing her, just stating she hadn't gotten back to me yet.

I'm not criticizing her either. She may actually be really busy with her job and therefore hasn't been able to get back with you. And she may actually be working on your issue.

You're preaching to the choir. It's not like I think her only mission in life is to hover over her computer to be available to immediately respond to my posts.
