When transferring to a new computer do you really have to install Opera 19

  • I had to do a reload of win7. The process is going well, but just takes a lot of time. For Opera 19, I first transferred the folder in "Program files (86), Appdata local and roaming. Then just for the heck of it I clicked on the "launcher.exe" file and Opera 19 loaded just fine and seems to work correctly. So is there any reason to do the install process of Opera 19?

  • The reasons would be the same for almost all Windows programs: have it available to the system and be able to use with other programs and/or set it as a default program.

    So if you want to, let's say, open links from other programs using Opera, if you want to set Opera asva default browser, or something like this, then you should install Opera.

  • I'll install it, I don't expect it to delete or otherwise damage the settings, bookmarks, passwords, etc I how have but I'll backup the folder anyway. Just for your information, the only problem I have encounter is that after reboots the screen is not full and I have to click on the setting to make it fill the screen otherwise everything else is working as expected.
    Thanks for responding.
