Cannot find an icon to start Opera

  • Greetings.

    I have a Samsung Tab 3 tablet, running Android 4.2.2. Everything indicates that I have installed Opera, but I do not have an icon on my Apps "desktop" nor is it listed in Settings->Application Manager. I've even tried to reinstall it, but that made no difference. So, how do I actually run it?

    The attempts to reinstall it clearly showed that something thought I've already installed it, but it does not seem to be on my tablet. ???


  • Sigh, never mind. Google Play and the Opera site kept telling lies. With the tablet's default browser, I found a download page on the Opera site that said Opera was "Installing" rather than "Installed." It never finished, though. I managed to cancel it, and reinstalled from another Opera page that said, "If your download doesn't start right away, try going here:" or something to that effect. I went to this page, Opera installed after a while, and I had a proper icon.

    Opera works just as expected, thanks. 🙂
