Create new Setting to halt windows shutdown to confirm whether you want to close Opera

  • Issue: Games lock up PC, restarting the PC closes Opera when it would be better to keep Opera open
    Lame Fix: Type anything in notepad, but don't save it, then use CTRL-ALT-DEL to shutdown or restart windows if a game locks up; notepad will interrupt the shutdown or restart process making it possible to cancel out after the game has closed, so that you wind up at the desktop; alas, Opera has closed...
    PROBLEM: Restarting closes Opera requiring restarting Opera and restoring opened tabs
    SOLUTION: Create an Option in Settings such that check-marking this option causes Opera to interrupt a shutdown or restart to ask if you really want to close Opera, or else cancel the shutdown. Selecting to Cancel the shutdown sends you to the desktop with Opera and all of its open tabs still open. Hooray!
    Also, this way you don't need to keep an unsaved open document in notepad.
