General Opera for Windows Question and Answer Thread

  • Hi, I use AeroGlass and transparency in the skin not once you get the native skin Windows 10, or just have to use a different browser in the end.

  • Is it or will it be possible to use standard window management? (Standard title bar, window borders, etc?)

    What do you mean by this?

  • What do you mean by this?

    From what I can tell, Opera uses a custom title bar and window borders, meaning that it doesn't play so well with window managers like autohotkey, at least in Windows 7. Is there some way to restore the system title bar and borders?

    Nope, you can't restore what wasn't there.

  • Why dont appear the magic actions for youtube controls in the new opera.
    I desinstal and instal opera and magic actions for you tube and te controls dont appear.<
    I left opera soon

  • Why dont appear the magic actions for youtube controls in the new opera.

    Maybe because that extension hasn't been updated in the last 1 year? Maybe because Youtube has changed its layout?

  • Some how I got something that keeps popping up tabs for dating, sex and brides constantly. What can I do to stop this?

    Not exactly an Opera issue, you probably got a malware in your computer. Try running some anti-malware and anti-virus software.

  • Can't happen to find the official Opera blue-white wallpaper with the mountain and the cloud above it, with the polygon look. Does anyone know where to find it? Or maybe some good pal has saved it to his drive? 😛 Thanks in advance.

    I don't think so.

  • Seen cases before - some time ago - where it would grab a section of the window and then tile it across the page like that. But never reproducible.

  • Interesting I have also had this happen. https://imgur.com/a/ASDm1 Any idea why this happens ? I have been recommending this the my users and now I'm having to rethink that. especially after the sell out.

  • Hi. I am unfortunately rather uneducated about computers these days. I used to know enough to get into trouble, but I’m afraid I haven’t kept up with things, and have been left behind. That said, I have problems with my computer deleting my browser. I searched and found one other issue regarding this and only found one, from 2015, and it was closed, but I did not benefit from reading it.

    I downloaded and installed the Opera browser and pinned it to my bar, and it worked well for weeks. Then one morning it was gone. I looked in the Windows program list in their little window icon in the corner and it was gone. I searched for it and Windows found nothing. I opened the downloads folder and even the .exe I had initially used had vanished. I downloaded it again and pinned the shortcut to the bar, and the next time I looked for it it was missing. This happened several times. Eventually something one of my children had been doing on my browser remained in the recent folder so I tried opening that before reinstalling and it opened the browser. Pinned the shortcut, but the next time I used the computer the shortcut was gone again. I followed this routine a few times to get my browser back and noticed that if the window didn’t get closed the pinned shortcut remained in the bar, but was not the O but looked like a document. If the browser got closed attempting to reopen gave me an error, which I did not think to write down and have no recollection as to what it said. But the browser was gone again.

    This morning I was greeted with files in the download folders all claiming to be Opera web documents, all open in my son’s Chrome, but when opened from there did open my Opera.

    I am irritated that I must look for my browser every time I use the computer. I am concerned that by opening it this way I am creating future problems with broken code or something. I am also under the impression that reinstalling it regularly is just filling up my hard drive with useless garbage and random lost files, and I have an old computer with barely enough space for Windows 10 and don’t want to be making more trouble than I can deal with.

    Is there a thread that addresses this issue? Please let me know where and I will look at that and see if I can fix this inconvenience without further ado. If not, please form your answers in a manner an ID10T can understand.
    Thanks

    Not that I remember. There are/were some about disappearing shortcuts but not in the way you are describing it.

    And your issue would fit better in its own topic.

    Probably because Opera is set as default application for that file type or protocol.

    There seem to be something wrong with your Windows. A downloaded file should not be erased from your hard disk unless you have done it nor shortcuts should vanish with no reason.

    Did you check if you have logged in using the same user? Do you use any clean up software?

  • I have recently installed Opera and I love it except every couple of days or so it gets really slow or hangs and when I go into the control panel I see multiple versions of opera.exe running - sometimes with quite high CPU and memory usage.
    I only have two add-ons and disabling them made no difference.
    Any suggestions please?
