I use a laptop with external monitor. Keypass recalls the last window position, but if it is opened without the external monitor, it opens off-screen. The normal mechanisms for moving windows on-screen (e.g. right-click on task bar; select "move") are not available. The only solution is to find a monitor! Can keypass check available screen real estate on startup and ensure that it is visible?

    Applies to version 1.x - not sure about 2.x

    My apologies. I did a search before posting, but looks like this is a duplicate issue as pointed out by Paul.

    I cannot reproduce this with KeePass 1.29 on Windows 10. When the KeePass window is on a secondary monitor and this monitor is disconnected, Windows moves the window onto the primary screen.
