Dialog window missing, locks up opera

  • When I right click and choose 'Save image as...' I don't see the dialog window. Then every click in the Opera windows makes the system beep. Where did the dialog window go?
    What have I tried to fix it:
    ESC doesn't help.
    When I try to Shift-Click on the Taskbar I get nothing.
    Trying to right click on Opera to find Move only gets the same system beep.
    Other browsers that open the system save as dialog are still working.
    I use a program called winlister to see all open windows and the Save As dialog doesn't show up. I do see a Save As listing when other browser open it up.

    How to reset all the Opera windows short of uninstalling it. I'd rather not loose saved password info...

  • System (as in, Windows 10, etc) and version of Opera? Generally works here, though as I don't know your system that may or may not mean much.

  • @sgunhouse Opera is Version:56.0.3051.104
    and Windows 10 pro that was recently updated to try and see the dialog again.

  • Let's make sure the settings make sense - go to Settings (from the menu), click on Advanced, then Browser, If you scroll down a little you should see a setting block named Downloads. Make sure the directory listed exists and you have access to it.

  • @sgunhouse that did it, that was the key that needed jiggling. By verifying the downloads folder was a available and by turning off then on again the 'Ask Where' question, the AWOL dialog window has returned to duty.
