Closing Opera doesn't end Opera's Processes

  • Sometimes when i close the Opera Browser the Opera, the GUI closes but the processes doesnt end. That mean that when i want to open Opera again i have to close the processes manually from the Task Manager of Windows. Any tips to solve that? Its very annoying.


  • @darkknight Opera does some tasks when closing so it's kinda normal that the processes take a while to end.
    However if they are never ending then there's something wrong.

    Try checking if the behavior is the same with a clean profile directory.

  • What did you do in those "times"?

    Maybe Opera unloading memory?

    At the other hand,
    you might need to look at How to report problems in Opera steps.

    For the clean profile:

    • Opera Help > Find solutions.
      | - And rename the profile folder -.

    Windows 10 (x64) | Anniversary Update
    Opera Stable · Beta · Developer

    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up Linux · Mac · Win
