windows explorer bug after Opera lunch

  • Hello all,

    I have an issue, when I lunch Opéra it cause an issue with windows explorer.
    Background image bug and black square on desktop.

    It can be resolve by restarting the windows explorer with the task manager.

    Does anyone here can help me with this issue ?

    Have a nice day

  • You could force quit Opera using the Task Manager. That way, Opera would be forced to restart itself.

    Hope this helps!

  • Thanks but no 😁

    I'm looking for a solution that prevent opéra to make the windows explorer bug when I lunch it.

    For now I juste restart windows explorer each time I lunch Opéra.

  • @tomkrin There is probably an app which could restart Windows Explorer every time that you start Opera - like a rule or something? You would probably be best to search the Internet for a program that does that.

    Hope this helps!

  • @tomkrin Try disabling all the extensions and see if the problem clears when you restart Opera. If so, re-enable them one at a time, restart Opera each time, and see which extension causes the problem to repeat. Then disable just that one extension and re-enable all the others to confirm that the extension is, in fact, the only cause. At that point, you can try to track down why the extension is causing the problem in the first place (assuming that it is the cause).
