#1641 Keypass window is orphaned if external monitor disconnected


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.

    1) Go to Control Panel\Appearance and Personalization\Ease of Access Center\Make the mouse easier to use

    2) Untick "Prevent windows from being automatically arranged when moved to the edge of the screen".

    3) Then select (activate) Keepass windows in the taskbar

    4) Press [Windows key] + [Arrow Up] to maximize Keepass windows.
