[Solved]Downloaded pictures turn into speed dial/new tab wallpaper. Does this happen to anyone else?

  • I'm not sure if this just started happening when I downloaded opera in the first place or a bit later but this is weird. Is this a bug or can I disable it? I think they go where "recent wallpapers" are. If it's a bug should I change wallpaper location/update? Here's a screenshot of my browser info. f4567619-5a65-4248-9a9d-810de5e6f1ed-image.png

  • For me, I have to actually select "Use as wallpaper".

    Let's see ... 32-bit Opera on 64-bit Windows (that's what WOW64 means), single-user install ... nothing obvious anyway.

  • @idontknowaname476 What are the steps to reproduce the problem? Does it happen in Opera 60, the current stable build? If you have extensions, disabling them make any difference? It happens with a clean profile?

    Here, just downloading a image doesn't turn it into wallpaper.

  • @leocg The bug seems to have fixed itself, just tried it out by looking up a picture, right clicking and pressing "Save Image As" then click ok. It is still the default image. Will update again sometime in the future if it happens and I will try and focus on what steps I have took to reproduce it that time. @sgunhouse i appreciate the replies guys! Thanks.
