Steam opens HTTPS links to Chrome because Opera is not in "Set Default Programs"

  • Windows 7
    Opera 16.13 USB install (ran with admin to see if it would register properly, but it didn't)

    Examples of problem:

    1. http://imagebin.org/316614 (Opera is not registered here, for some reason)
    2. http://imagebin.org/316613 (from chromes page, I can't find any way to change this from the file manager either)
  • Afaik you can't set Opera as default browser in an usb/standalone install. You need to install it for all users.

  • But its already on all the other options?

  • I found, http://ciantic.blogspot.no/2010/01/add-your-program-to-default-programs-in.html

    And changed it. Just replace \App\Opera\wherevere with \Program Files (x86)\Opera or similar.
