"Pop out to new window" disappears off screen

Hi, just struggling a bit this morning, I have been using BW for a few weeks now having switched from LP. One thing I used to do is have my vault open for sites that required multiple different credentials, there doesn’t seem to be that option in BW but I can click the little arrow to have it “pop out to a new window” - unfortunately when my browser is on screen 2 (the left of my main screen) the pop out disappears off the side of the screen, if I move my browser to screen 1 then click “pop out” then I can see it on screen 1. Move the browser back to screen 2 and it disappears again (screen 2 is a lower resolution than screen 1 so I reckon it is remembering the co-ordinates from somewhere). I am using Chrome on Windows 10. Is there some way to reset the “co-ordinates” for the pop-up? I tried moving it and then closing it hoping it would store the co-ordinates, but when I click the pop out button again it just disappears off screen again - is there a way to make it pop-up in a particular location on the screen? Are the co-ordinates stored somewhere?



Right-click the icon for the BW window on the Windows taskbar, select “Move” then you should be able to bring the window into view by moving your mouse.

Dan’s answer as a picture with description:

  • Move mouse to position 1
  • Move mouse to position 2 and right click
  • Move mouse to position 3 and click left on Move

then either:

  • Click and hold left
  • Move mouse to re-position the window
  • Release left mouse button when done


  • Press cursor up, down, left or right once
  • Move mouse without pressing a button
  • Left click when done

As an alternative and to avoid this issue completely:
Why not use Ctrl + Shift + L to fill in the credentials?

Thanks, that was the first thing I tried but I don’t get that option:


Oh lord, it’s a Windows thing, you have to hover over the icon, wait for the thumbnail to appear, then right click on that… jesus…


There is even a “keyboard-only” solution to this issue:

  • Use Alt+Tab to select the window that has gone rogue
  • Press Alt+Space once
  • Press the character that is associated with the Move command (in English it is “M”)
  • Keep on pressing cursor left, right, down or up till you see it. (#)
  • Press Enter

(#) After pressing a cursor key at least once it still is definitely much easier to use the mouse to position the window.
