Opera Browser does not return to page where I left off

  • The Opera browser -- unlike any other browser that I have used -- does not return to the page you left (to go to another program), on returning to Opera program.

    Perhaps I am missing something. Is there some setting somewhere?

    Or, is this "feature" going to be fixed?

    Or, do people like it that you have to navigate back to where you were?

    Thank you!

  • @reedmburkhart At least on Windows, if I'm in Opera and then change to, let's say, Word and return back to Opera, it will be showing the same page.

  • Only thing I can think of is a link that opens in another program (like PDFs used to do in classic Opera), the browser would be left with an empty tab with the URL in the address bar. And sometimes auto-downloading files do that too, but they don't open another program. Otherwise - if you switch to another program without actually doing anything in Opera - you should have stayed on the same page.
