  • Hey folks,
    Whenever I have Opera open and do something that changes the screen's video settings, such as playing a video game, as soon as I return to the desktop, Opera appears as a window instead of it's usual maximized self. It's been doing this ever since the update last week, and it's starting to really annoy me.

    Is this a mere setting I need to change in Preferences? Or will it be fixed in the next update?

  • It's the first time i remember have seen someone reporting such issue.

  • Title corrected. Minimize means the program vanishes, leaving only the taskbar icon. Restore means to appear as a window, and Maximize means to occupy the full screen (but with the tab bar and so on).

  • Actually, I don't think "restore" is the right word either. Opera remains "maximized", but it's done to the game's resolution, so when I return to desktop I have to double click the address bar to Window it, then double click again to maximize it to my desktop resolution.

    Anyway, I know it's not that big of a deal, but it'd be nice if the issue were addressed in a future update.

  • Does Chrome do the same thing? If so it might be a renderer limitation.
