Can't make Opera my default web browser in win 7...

  • ....and there is no Opera in listed program where i can set defaulkt programs in windows.
    Can somebody help me? I try couple of solutions from the net but I didn't solve a problem.

  • Let me guess - 64 bit Windows and 32-bit Opera? Either that or you did a "standalone install", but you'd know you did that.

  • In Opera, goto the URL opera://about to see where Opera is installed. Then, close down Opera and delete the install directory.

    Then, download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to "C:\Program Files\Opera", set "install for" to "All users", adjust the other checkboxes and install.

    If you do it that way, Opera should then be available in Default Programs in Windows.
