Mailspring keeps opening off screen


Mailspring opens outside the monitor area and can’t be brought back into view without restarting the computer. I have a laptop and a single monitor attached to it. Tried all the regular tricks (taskbar → cascading, side by side etc. it just does not move).

Expected Behavior



  • OS and Version: Windows 10 Home 20H2
  • Mailspring Version: 1.8

Additional Context

I’ve had this problem occur. As long as some part of the app is on the screen, I just keep grabbing the corner I can see and re-sizing. Eventually, Mailspring snaps back onto the screen. Once, when it was completely off the screen, I did a right click on the task bar icon and selected Move and was able to get it back on the screen.
