Invisible Opera in Win 10

  • I've installed Opera Ver 46 for win 10 and even though I can see the program listed in the installed software area, it REFUSES to be listed anywhere in the start menu and not even Cortana can find it. I literally have to go to the file explorer and go to where it is installed just to run it. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? What can I do? I've tried "Pin to start" but that did zip and it doesn't have a shortcut on the desktop.

    So is it me, or is Microsoft trying to hide software now?

  • Broken installation, maybe? How Opera was installed? Did you try a reinstall?

  • Yes, I had downloaded and reinstalled twice with the same result. No Opera that is findable in any way except through the file explorer. Even in the "All Programs" area, I can scroll to the O's and there is zip. I even tried installing the Classic Shell program and it STILL doesn't show it. It is so frustrating. All I can do is pin it to the taskbar to run it from there.

  • And how Opera was installed? For all users? For current user? Stand alone mode?

    Did you use online installer or offline one?

  • I went to your website's main page, did the "download" option and installed it like normal. Like any other program one might do. It is July 27th and I still can't find Opera in the software list, I still have to run it from the taskbar.

  • Oh by the way, I tried to go to Win 10's app store for Opera and it didn't find Opera. The only browsers (aside from Edge) were things like UC browser and some other that cost 99 cents.

    OK, online installer then. Try downloading and run the offline one to see what happens.

    As far as I know, MS only accepts browsers that use Edge's engine in its store.

  • Where is the download version?
