Highlighting text, but no more Search popup when I use my monitor's touchscreen

  • Hello, I've got a quick question about the Search popup.

    I had to reinstall Windows on my desktop computer (long story). However, after setting up Opera again, I no longer get the Search popup when I highlight text using my touchscreen.

    The strange thing is that the Search popup does in fact appear when I highlight text using my mouse. It gives me the option to "Search" (on the left) followed by the option to "Copy" (on the right).

    But when I highlight text using my monitor's touchscreen, I get the option to "Copy" (on the left) followed by 3 dots (on the right). If I click the 3 dots, I get a menu that gives me the option to search, but it's so much more convenient having the Search popup appear from the get-go.

    I looked all over my Settings and couldn't find anything that helps. The Search popup always worked before with my touchscreen, so I don't know what's wrong. Granted, this is a very minor issue, but it would be cool to get the Search/Copy button again.

    Thanks in advance!
