Outlook links not bringing Opera to top window of desktop

  • I tried setting default browser to Chrome, it worked properly, then back to Opera, it shows activity in taskbar, and manually bringing Opera to top reveals that links did start tabs, including multiple tries on any one link..

    What can I do to get it to open the window on top of Outlook?

  • Does it work with other programs?

  • The computer in question is a Win7 HP notebook belonging to a friend. She only brought me in to question me on the Outlook>>browser problem after I put Opera on her computer so she would have the VPN feature.

    Since it worked fine with Chrome set as default, but not with Opera, I just put her back on Chrome and told her to surf and explore the web only with Opera.

    Then I added, do not open any more links from Outlook of which you are not sure. (The splash message popping up on screen from the "MS" guy in India who wanted to cure her trojan problem was the start of all this!)
