Doesn't work with Ccleaner and the Advanced SystemCare

  • Here are some key entries for GX - and any Opera version -.
    You have to change the paths to your Opera profile - Opera/About -.
    %AppData% is allowed.

    BackUp the profile before run it.

    • The section will appear as an Opera subkey.
      You can play uncomment SpecialDetect, Detect and comment SpecialKey1 to change that - if I recall -, but then they goes to the bottom - at least on my tests -.
    • Yes, I have the opera.png profiles on ProgramFiles. - Don't beat me @sgunhouse - πŸ˜„ / Ups! πŸ™„ It was @luetage? 😳 πŸ˜„
    • Copy and Paste the section to your WinApp2.ini.
    • CCEnhancer has an option to add your custom entries, but Notepad++ seems me easiest and faster.
      Use Ctrl+H to change all paths at once.
    • Keep another file with your custom entries as backup.
    • You can replace the single /* with /Data/, but /* it's needed for a Multiprofile environment.
    • Keep this code as a template until find/write your correct paths.
    [| Opera GX]

    As I can see, it's a bit messy, some keys have 2 options.

    Ok,
    It's to clean Files and Folders.
    It keeps the root folder and deletes the content.

    --

    To keep the info together:

    BackUp the profile before run any change.


    Windows 7 (x64)
    Opera Test profile | Opera Back up | Reset

    @PeterBurton Opera GX is Opera with a different UI and with different features.
    So if a program supports Opera, then it should also supports Opera GX.

    The cleaner applications don't detect Opera GX because they're looking at %AppData%\Opera Software\Opera Stable instead of %AppData%\Opera Software\Opera GX Stable all it would take is for them to add that new directory and the cleaning logic would literally be the same as Opera

  • @PeterBurton if I will see how I get into contacts with them but I am honest I find it strange that before two versions the Advanced SystemCare if it worked with the Opera GX and now after two versions no longer good thanks for the information πŸ‘‹πŸ»πŸ˜ƒβœŒ

  • @zalex108 ok I'll try to see a lot of thanks for the options πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜ƒβœŒ

  • There is actually no need to have CCleaner and IObit System Care on modern operating system. Most of the stuff it does use done by the OS itself, and most it can do is corrupt the registry and mess other things up.

  • @artexjay
    I deffer, about the use.
    But it's true that you have to set it up correctly and save the back ups to avoid problems.

    cCleaner, WinApp2 and your custom entries can clean many things with one click.
    iObit SysCare, has served me to notice the high CPU / Temp used by Opera and Vivaldi watching videos.
    Currently I'm using Firefox for media, CPU is 10ΒΊC lesser and no fan noise.

    Despite that, I prefer to run the clean myself or set up a task, instead of keep some apps running.
    iObit Monitor gives some info about the performance, all in one small view.

    If someone likes that kind of info monitors, look for Desktopinfo.

    Also, all of you, check out System Ninja.
    It cleans many junk files at once, no keys adding needed.

    Also, I'm not using W10 anymore for now, so don't remember a built in cleaner on 2 years old W10 builds, I can't speak about other OSs.

    For that,
    If you are not using Beta-Next/Dev, you may create a Symbolic Link pointing to GX and named as Opera Beta-Next/Dev.

    That way both apps may recognize it.

    Symbolic Link Creator will do it and it's easy to use.

    --

    Or install any of them and replace them with GX files.
    That option would be the fastest.

    No need for additional software, built in mklink will do the job in one line:

    mklink /d "%AppData%\Opera Software\Opera Stable" "%AppData%\Opera Software\Opera GX Stable"

    Sure!

    But the app needs no explain on where to apply the command, Elevate... and saves you to remember the commands if you don't use them often.

    Apart, SymbLinkCreator is portable.

    Despite you cant save the command.

    As usual, by adding /? you can also display some help for the command:

    mklink/?
