(Windows 10) System settings open when i open opera??

  • I think its a glitch, but every time i open opera (Recent update as of 6/10/16) the system settings (Specifically it takes me to change my default browser, even though i didn't tell it to do, or anything.) opens. Is there a work around to preventing this? Will this issue be fixed (SOON)? Is anyone else having this issue too?

  • Try going to control panel and set Opera as default application for everything it can handle.

  • It is already default for web browsing and email. Its really annoying, i do think ill just have to wait for an update ;-;

  • Same problem with me.

  • Yup same here. Opera is my default browser, but every time I open Opera the 'Default Applications' settings window opens along with it. Annoying as heck. Just started doing it about a week maybe.

  • Same, ocurring since the last update on every start. Fix please!

  • Same here.

  • Hello Everyone, I was having the same problem, but I think I might have found a solution. From my understanding, it is something to do with the API to Windows that Opera uses to set itself as the default browser causing the issue. However, Chrome has fixed this issue with the API. Therefore, I set Chrome as the default through Windows Settings > System > Default Apps, then opened Opera and selected 'No' when asked if I wanted to set Opera as the default, and checked not to show this message again. I then closed Opera, opened Chrome, navigated to any web page, then closed Chrome. I then went back into Windows Settings and set Opera as the default, opened Opera and NO SETTING POPPED UP!! 😄

    Hopefully this will work for you too! - Please let me know if it does and I will post the solution on other forums to help others having the same issue.

    Thanks!

    That worked for me. Thanks!

  • Now there are "control panel" and "settings" that intermingle and overlap, connecting to each other and at times contradicting.

    I think that new "settings" is unstable and, at now, classic control panel is safer.

  • I followed the proposed solution to the letter, but it doesn't work for me. Any other ideas?

    Worked for me. Thanks!

  • Has anyone found a solution.

    I do not want Chrome (if I had Chrome I would not have Opera a far superior browser in my mind) and I have tried

    RIGHT click the Start Button. Click Control Panel. Click Default Programs. Click Set Your Default Programs. Scroll to Opera Stable and Click it. Click Set This Program as Default - Use the selected program to open all file types and protocols it can open by default. Click OK and Close the Control Panel. Close Opera if open and then open Opera.

    Bob's NOT your Uncle as this does not work.

    Will have to live with it until new version appears unless someone has another solution.
