Why do all my downloaded files have an Opera symbol in the front of them?

  • What is going on? My other PC does not do this.

    Any insight would be greatly appreciated,

  • What kind of files? Usually it means that Opera was set as the default handler for those files.

    Example :

    On Windows 10, here is what you need to do (tested and verified):
    Right click on the PDF file
    Open with...
    Choose another application
    Select Adobe Acrobat Reader (or any other application you are looking for)
    Tick the box "Always use this application by default)
    close all your "Explorer" windows.
    [Ctrl] + [Shift] + [Esc] (Tasks monitor if you prefer)
    Search for the remaining "Explorer" processus.
    Restart the processus

    DONE ! If you go back to your folder where you had that PDF file with the Chrome icon, it will now display the usual PDF one.

    Hope this Helps..

  • That cured it-thank you very much!
    Best regards.
