Opera randomly pins itself to the taskbar

  • So, several times now, across multiple computers, I've had Opera just randomly decide to pin itself to the taskbar (just happened again today). This is quite infuriating, because I never pin anything to the taskbar. Is this a bug, or are you intentionally telling it to do this? If the latter, I really wish you'd stop, and if it's the former then I hope you can fix it. I don't like having to wrestle with a program to make it do what I want.

    I realize this is only a minor annoyance, but it's still an annoyance.

  • @jito463 Suggestion. I've found Opera browser sometimes 'remembers' things you don't want or have changed.
    You don't mention it, but if you're using the same shortcut on desktop, I would would be inclined to delete it, and unpin the taskbar icon you don't want.
    Then go to your Opera folder, right click the Launcher, sending a new shortcut to desktop (it should only sit on taskbar and/or desktop if you make it so).
    Don't forget to restart before doing anything else. Hope this helps.
