Opera Speed Dial Problem
indianhead last edited by
Recently, when I open the Opera Speed Dial screen, It takes up the entire window and my task bar does not show.. I have to shut down and restart for the task bar to show.
How can I get both the speed dial page and the task bar to show?

My display resolution is 1024x600.
With some completely newly installed Opera versions (stable, in portable mode, on Windows 7 32-bit) it happened that after starting Opera my automatically hidden taskbar, which I positioned on the left side of the window, could no longer be brought to the foreground when Opera was started with maximized window (not in fullscreen mode).
So far I could always solve this issue by first switching the Opera window to not maximized, then resizing the Opera window to any smaller size, and re-starting Opera.
After that, even if I maximized the Opera window again, I could bring the taskbar back to the foreground normally.
Maybe that's what the OP means.
So far, I thought this was a peculiarity related to my unusual screen resolution.
EDIT: I remember that this was also the case with the Chromium-based Vivaldi browser. The cause of this phenomenon may therefore be less to Opera than to the underlying chromium base.
I beg your pardon for my poor English.

This only happens when the start page (speed dial page) is open in a tab and focused? Or, are you just saying that in general Opera is preventing the taskbar (which is set to auto-hide) from appearing on top?
If the latter, I've seen that happen in both Chrome and Opera before. The issue always went away after a few updates like there was a bug that was introduced that got fixed after a bit.

Yes, it is the latter ('some versions of Opera were/are preventing the taskbar, which is set to auto-hide, from appearing on top').
In my case, my workaround always brought the taskbar back to the foreground, maybe it works for @indianhead as well.
I've seen that happen in both Chrome and Opera before.
So this issue seems to be more widespread than I thought. I always assumed it is only me, due to my unusual display resolution or my taskbar being positioned on the left side, which is also uncommon.
