Where is my 'run' or 'exe' button?!

  • Where did the exe-button go when I download a file?
    This goes for pdf's as well.
    I always have to save the file or pdf first, only then I can execute or open it.
    It's been bothering me for months, can't find the settings that causes it

    Anyone out there who can help? 😧

  • @doortjedartel It was never there, since Opera Chromium never had such button.

    Couldn't answer you because I was banned for a few days for the use of capitals....😶

    But thanks for clearing that up, indeed, it is an Opera-issue... Never realised that before.
    As this really is an annoying shortcoming for me I decided to go back using Maxthon again.
    But meh..... no.
    Then tried Firefox, nope again.
    Tried Chrome, nope....

    So i'm back here 🙂
    Because for all the rest of it I like Opera the best. And as I have three monitors (yippie!!) I now keep Maxthon open on one of the other screens and when I need to download a file, or want to read a pdf, I copy the address into Maxthon, click 'download' and voilá. Works fine.

    Even handier of course would be if Opera also added the 'run' or 'open' feature to the download box!
