@flymah14 Hey! I have few questions regarding this problem. We are trying to solve it Do you have some AntiVirus software installed? Could you please check the installation directory. Default is c:\Program Files\Opera GX\ or c:\Program Files\Opera\ there is a file installer_prefs.json, please open it and check what value do you have of "single_profile": - true or false? Thanks in advance!

@jryc ok so I have an antivirus installed now but when I first tried to download it I didn't have it
the install path that is automatically used is C:\Users\harcs\AppData\Local\Programs and the single_profile value is false
please let me know if there is anything I can do
my computer is a dell and my os is windows
my friends have all been able to install it without a problem and I would very much like to know why it is happening to me

The widget folder is located in Opera\widgets.
@burnout426 So sorry, I think I haven't guided you properly. So, the folder is located in somewhere Program Files or C:\Users > [username] > AppData > Local > Opera > Widgets. Check it and let me know if it helps.

I just installed OperaGX and every time I want to open it, it immediately crashes. I only see the animation thing when I try to open it but then it won't do anything else. I also looked in the Taskmanager wether it was there or not, but I couldn't find anything...
What could I do to fix this?

See https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/comments/j5fstq/opera_opera_gx_not_opening_or_opening_and_closing/ for what you can do to help Opera find the problem and fix it.

Is anyone here making use of the Microsoft Family feature (Mircosoft Family & Safety) in Windows (Settings > accounts -> Family & other users in Windows 10, parental controls I think in Windows 7)? If so, that's likely the problem. Opera is being blocked access from running (which causes it to start and close) and you need to allow it in the family settings for each user.
See the edit in this post for more info.

I had the same problem, Opera was working fine then i saw an error message on the background, it was about opera gx auto update i closed the error and continued watching youtube, the next day (which is today) i opened the browser everything was normal then i saw the update so i updated the browser. But when i tried to open it it came up with a splash screen then closed itself and never opened, i tried re-installing, running it as administrator but none worked, so i think its about an update that caused the problem.

I'm totally new user to Opera and wanted to try out Opera GX.
Downloaded the automatic installer, everything installs fine, but then when the Opera GX browser is supposed to open, I just get the animated splash screen then it closes and nothing! Re-trying to open Opera GX results in the same disappointing experience! No change if I uninstall or re-install, or if I use the 64-bit specific installer. However, if I use the 32-bit installer, then Opera comes up just fine!
So ... what gives? This an up-to-date Windows 10 PC and has never had Opera browser before. It does have Google Chrome browser installed however, my previous browser. Used this installer: Opera_GX_73.0.3856.438_Setup_x64.exe, the latest as of this writing.
No error or exception dialog pops up, so really no clue why I can't run the 64-bit version of Opera GX but I'd like to make you aware of the issue or figure out my problem and get it fixed.

Opera GX just won't open, I already tried uninstalling more than 3 times, cleaning the cache and% appdata% but the problem continues, Opera GX just shows its logo animation but the browser never opens.

Windows Key + Rand paste -
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Opera GX\launcher.exe" -uninstall(with the -uninstall, don't delete anything)
Make sure that Delete my Data is UNCHECKED and uninstall the app.
Download an old offline installer from the links - 64 bit OR 32 Bit:
x64 - https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera_gx/73.0.3856.438/win/Opera_GX_73.0.3856.438_Setup_x64.exe
x32 - https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera_gx/73.0.3856.438/win/Opera_GX_73.0.3856.438_Setup.exe
Disconnect from the internet and run the installers
Windows Key + Rand paste -
From there delete the
opera_autoupdater.exe, and do the same from
73.0.3856.438_0or similar if they exist
Run Opera GX normally

I recently installed opera gx and got everything setup. After I restarted my computer I realized that opera would rarely open and if it did no pages would load. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and also logging into a local windows account instead of using my microsoft account but nothing seems to work.
