WHY did Opera hijack my computer???

  • I am VERY upset that Opera 39.0.2256.71 hijacked my computer. No other browser app including Chrome (yuck btw) took over all of my links and default file types without first ASKING.

  • What exactly did it "take over"? Aside from opening web pages, there's nothing else I imagine it would be opening by default. And you can easily set one of your other browsers as default, if that's what you want.

  • It should only take over content set to be viewed with IE or Edge and of course HTML or links, and it does ask - but assumes an answer of Yes. Next time, click on Options and make sure what the program will do.
