When is an Extension not an Extension

  • Why is it that some Extensions are not listed on the extension page but show up in the task manager as for instants

    Extension: Opera Touch Background (Also could someone please explain what this actually does as ending the process doesn't seem to effect anything)
    Extension: Video Handler
    Extension: Background Worker

    These are apparently Extensions but none of them show in the extension page

  • @athlonite They are internal (built-in) extensions, and hidden from the Extensions page.
    For example, "Opera Touch Background" is responsible for talking with Opera Touch (a mobile web browser).

  • @athlonite said in When is an Extension not an Extension:

    These are apparently Extensions but none of them show in the extension page

    "C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" --show-component-extension-options
    

    That will show them.
