Vault becomes unresponsive if on second monitor when closed

Steps to reproduce

Open a vault with a second monitor attached. Move the vault onto the second monitor in windowed (not maximized) mode. Close the vault. Disconnect the second monitor. Reopen the vault.

Expected result

I would expect the vault to either default to the remaining screen or respond to the windows snap commands.

Actual result

The window does not appear on the remaining screen. Though it appears in the ⊞+Tab screen, it does not respond to any snap commands, either from the keyboard or the Task View. Until you reattach the second display, there appears to be no way to access the vault through Obsidian. I have not tested if this issue persists after a restart.


  • Operating system: Windows 10
  • Obsidian version: v0.10.8

Additional information

This is on a laptop with dual GPUs (iGPU and dGPU), and the monitor is connected over HDMI through a DisplayPort 1.4 connector.
