Multiple Monitors - PBI Icon on Wrong Screen

I am working with multiple monitors (2). Ever since I updated to Windows 11, the icon of PowerBI no longer shows up on the right screen.

This is especially annoying/inneficient when there are multiple overlapping softwares open on the same screen and the user has to go to the other monitor to open PBI and navigate between different software.

 

These are my Taskbar settings, PBI seems to be the only software which does not respect these settings.

This seems is the same problem that was reported in 2017:

Hi @SamuelAB 

Download the version of Power BI Desktop that matches the architecture (x86 or x64) of your Windows OS. So what is the architecture (x86 or x64) of your Windows ? How about Desktop ? After you updating system to W11 , did you reinstall your Desktop ? Maybe you can download the latest version Desktop and then install it to see whether the PBI icon will be hiden .

I have the 64 bit install, just like my Windows. Reinstalling did not help.

Did you test to see if you could reproduce the issue on your end?
