In current Opera Stable, Beta, Dev, this bug is fixed, but only for a clean profile.

This issue must be fixed ASAP because CTRL+SHIFT+END/HOME/PGUP/PGDOWN keys are vital for any developer. I really hope that 64 major update will include the fix.
It you can't wait, see https://forums.opera.com/post/181232 where you can fix it yourself really quickly using JSONedit. Might be a good thing to do as a fix for repairing existing installs might take longer.

omg, finally! This was driving me nuts too, never really had time to investigate this issue properly, at least now I know what caused it. A really annoying bug.

- open Opera 63.0.3368.94
- open several other browser (eg Chrome, IE)
- try to use ctrl-shift-delete combo to call the clear history window
- the combo doesn't work for Opera
- Opera locks the combo for all the other opened browsers, and this is critical.

I have been experiencing problems with Word, Excel and other apps when trying to select text from the insertion point to the end or beginning of the file with keyboard shortcut ctrl+shift+end. At first I thought it had to do with customization of Word and other MS Office apps, but now I have finally been able to isolate the problem: the shortcut does not work when Opera is running and as soon as I close it, text selection goes back to normal.
My opera version is 63.0.3368.94 and I just disinstalled and reinstalled it, to no avail. Any help with this would be appreciated because sometimes I have to work with Office apps and Opera at the same time and the glitch is really annoying., Thanks in advance

Worked for me, version 63.0.3368.94

This is something that started some days ago (I'm not sure when), but I recently realized it's Opera to blame.
I frequently use Ctrl-Shift-Home and Ctrl-Shift-End to "select everything to the beginning/end", but when Opera is running, this shortcut just does nothing. Despite I'm in another browser, or in Notepad, Word, etc., the shortcut just doesn't work. Using only Ctrl or Shift with Home/End works, but not the three keys at the same time. As soon as I close Opera, everything works as expected.
I checked Opera's shortcuts but none has these key combination. Still if it was there, it should not affect other applications.
Does this happen to anyone else?
I'm using version 63.0.3368.94 (the latest as of today) on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (fully updated).

- Run Opera
- Run any other browser
- Try to use ctrl-shift-del to call the clear history window - try both in Opera and in the other opened browser
Result: clear history window is not showed in all the browsers currently running. Works fine after the Opera is closed.

I just noticed that Oper is blocking two (may be more) key combinations I use frequently:
Ctrl + Shift + End (select text in a text control down the end of the text)
Ctrl + Shift + Pos1 (select text in a text control up the beginning of the text)
Whenever Opera is running those two key combinations can't be used anymore in any Windows application (tested on multiple Windows installations)!
This only happens on my active profile, a new profile doe snot show this effect. Now I am trying to find out which setting in Opera causes this effect. I already tried to reset the key combinations in the opera settings but seems that this something else. The extended key combinations are also disabled.
As there is no export function to migrate the relevant settings to a fresh profile and I don't want to lose these key combinations with my current profile I am stuck.
Does anybody has an idea what Opera setting could cause this effect?
What I already tried (without effect):
- Uninstalling all extensions
- Resetting the key combinations in Opera settings
- Resetting the flags in opera://flags

Hello, please fix this problem asap. It's unacceptable that Opera settings affects other Windows apps.

Here another workaround:
- Open Opera
- Press SHIFT+ESC (this opens the Opera Task Manager)
- End process "Extension: Video Handler"
- Repeat step 3 (because it is restarted once)
- Only lasts until you restart Opera
- "Opera Video pop-out" is not available (if you do not know what that is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEwdu2F_Rdw#t=1m20s

I really like Opera and want to continue to use it, but it eliminates the ability to use commands such as control + shift + end and control + shift + home in other programs.
If you shut down the video handler extension these commands work again.
Could you please fix, I use these commands dozens of times a day and this is a really annoying bug.
I'll give it another week but then I'm just going to uninstall, it's too annoying to deal with.

Is this ever going to get fixed? Breaking critical functions outside of the Opera browser is problematic at best
