Amazon Promotion Extension

Just installed Opera browser. I see that there is already an Amazon Promotion Extension installed. However, I'm unable to uninstall or disable it. It doesn't appear in the Manage Extensions list either.
So how do I remove it? Or do I just remove Opera browser all together?

I must say, this is disheartening as I've used Opera as my "go-to" browser for many years.
At least they had the decency to disclose it. Although, my guess is that their arrangement with Amazon wouldn't allow otherwise.
The good news is that, upon further investigation, this can be "removed" relatively easily. You can do it one of two ways:
- Visit amazon.com from the address bar, and in the box that automatically opens in the top, right, select "Don't show this again"
- If "Amazon promotion" happens to show in your "Manage plug-ins" box, then just click the Pin next to "Amazon promotion". Then, click the light green "a" icon that shows in the toolbar. Then select "Don't show this again".
Even doing a full settings reset I was only able to get it to reappear one time. Other times, it seems to remember that I don't want it. Hope this helps someone.

@leocg I'm hoping you'll have a similar answer for the following extensions. I never noticed them in my list prior to yesterday, and it looks like none of them can be removed:
Chromium PDF Viewer
News feed handler
Opera Crypto Wallet
Rich Hints Agent
On the other hand, if there's an extension that should not be on that list, I'll take that as a sign to uninstall and reinstall.

If you are finding trouble removing the extension, then the best thing to do is to uninstall the Opera browser and reinstall it again.
Hope this helps!

Go to the installation folder (ex: *C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Local\Programs\Opera beta\75.0.3969.14\resources ) and delete the "Amazon Promotion" folder...
Not good Opera to install this kind of stuff without possibility to remove that as others extensions (At least it's not necessary to the good functioning of your browser!)
