Opera and touch screens

  • So I switched to Windows 10 yesterday and ever since, no more touch screen interaction with Opera 30!
    For the life of me, I think I still had some touch screen functionality when I started Win10, but today, nothing. No scrolling, no zoom in or out, not even clicking on links or interface buttons!
    Anything in the client windows seems to have gone dead (so I can close/min/max the window and drag it around, but Opera menu and tabs don't do anything).

    For info I'm on a Yoga 2, Win 10 64bit (whatever latest build this is), Opera 30 (latest).

    Any ideas? It's not vitally important since I'm on a hybrid, but it makes Opera 100% useless in tablet mode! :(

  • It happened to me too. But yesterday I was using the beta version. I removed it and got the stable version instead. So far this one works

  • I'm on Opera 30.0.1835.125 Stable, to be exact.
    Also, fun thing, it says that the operating system is "Windows 8.1 64 bit (WoW64)"

  • If every users cannot interact the touchscreen on Opera browser, what is the solution or the answer? :)

    Oh wait... is that the technical problem or a technical issue for not interacting the touchscreen earlier?

  • I'm sorry but I've no idea what you're talking about. Can you be a bit clearer?
    Is there another thread I could've posted to? Because I most certainly looked my issue in the forum before posting, but found nothing.

    As it stands, I absolutely cannot use Opera in tablet mode. Nothing works.

  • Appears to be fixed in update 31.0.1889.99.
    Nice!

  • OK, NOT FIXED!

    What the actual FUCK is going on?!

    I didn't install or uninstall anything at all. The only thing that's happened is my computer went into hibernation.
    Now I'm back and no more interaction.

    Can anybody at least tell me if anyone is looking at this?

  • Same problem here! Can't use opera on my Windows 10 tablet. No interactions possible :(

    I am able to click in the url bar only and I can minimize and close opera. But everything else is not reacting to my touchscreen interactions.

    After restart it sometimes works and everything reacts to my interactions but after a new restart it is not reacting again.

  • same problem

  • You sir, are a gentleman and scholar, and I thank you kindly!

    So clearly, the issue is Opera querying the existence of a touchscreen and not getting the right info from Win10.
    Hopefully this is only an issue with hybrids like my Yoga, because otherwise I can't imagine people on tablets will keep using Opera very long -_-

  • Now it works! Thank you msaman92.

  • Opera and Google Chrome are the worst browsers for touchscreens.
    I'm running an Acer R7 and Opera and Google don't work with the touchscreen.
    To make it worse, they don't run together and they collapse Edge.

  • How exactly do Opera and Chrome cause Edge to collapse?
