Windows Taskbar Icon Issues

  • I have been using Opera for about a year now, and I have the icon pinned to my Windows taskbar. In the past, I have been able to right click on the icon, and select the Open New Tab, Open New Window, and Open New Private Window options, as well as jump to some particularly often used sites from my bookmarks. The Open New functionality has been greyed out for the past few days, and I finally uninstalled my Opera browser, and re-installed a new image. The Windows taskbar icon now no longer has any functionality other than opening a new tab on an already opened window, pinning/unpinning from the taskbar, or Close Window.
    Has there been some intentional change to functionality? Why would you remove features that all other web browsers have? Is there a way to restore the functionality?


  • Seems to be working fine for me with Opera Stable (51.0.2830.55 x64) on Windows 10 Pro.
