[Solved] Opera hanging when uploading images to social media

  • For the last few weeks, when using my desktop PC with Windows 10, and I wish to upload an image on to Facebook for example, it hangs when it trys to open File Explorer to list the available images. It sometimes opens it eventually. I have tried closing all the Opera extensions and rebooting but to no avail.

  • Goto the URL opera://settings/userInterface, disable "Show popup with clipboard and recent downloads when uploading files" and restart Opera.

  • @burnout426 Brilliant - it works perfectly now - such an improvement for the 'flick of a switch'. Thank you.
