Taskbar shortcut problem after update (win 10)

  • Hi there,

    Description: almost every time I update Opera, the shortcuts "new tab, new window and new private window" in the taskbar stop to work. The shortcut itself (to open Opera) does work though.

    Steps to reproduce: Update Opera.

    Actual result: Shortcut seems broken (not every update).

    Expected result: Shortcut should work.

    OS: Windows 10 (14393.693)

    Version of Opera: Versions prior to 43.0.2442.1144 (PGO)

    Uninstalling Opera and reinstalling it corrects the problem. But I don't want to do it every two weeks, so I thought I'd ask here for a possible fix.

    Sorry for my poor English, have a good day!

  • Try this next time it happens. Close Opera. Delete the shortcut. Start Opera. Right click it and pin it to the taskbar. Does that fix it?

  • Probably, user's permissions needs to be checked and fixed.
