  • I have a problem with Opera browser for a week. When I open the browser, it shows only on taskbar. I can't open the window and when I try to click on the Opera on taskbar, nothing happens (the showing small window is grey). The problem is fixed after uninstall an install again Opera. But it repeats everyday. Does anyone have the same issue and fixed it? Thank you for any reply.

    I have the same issue, I am worried to uninstalled opera as I will loose my session buddy saved tabs. Opera browser seems to be working in task manager but couldn't for some reason find the opera window.

  • @jiafoongwee Tried killing the task then restarting?

  • @sgunhouse Yes I did, same issue when it restarted. I can right-click on the Opera icon from taskbar to open new windows, Opera seems to recognize and keep track of how many windows are open, but those windows are not displaying.

    When I hover over each of the windows from taskbar. I just brings me to the desktop.

  • @jiafoongwee Okay, I sort of figured it out. I was using my laptop with 2 extended monitors.
    Disabling the intel graphics driver and reenabling it worked for me. I had to try a it a few times taking turns disabling and enabling Intel and Nvidia graphics driver.

  • @jiafoongwee Update, the problem start occurring again. This time disabling and enabling the graphics drivers doesn't work, even if my laptop is not plugged into the second monitor. Tried reinstalling but same problem. Anyone have similar problems?

  • @jiafoongwee Still got this problem. I have extended monitor too, and it happens when I unplug the monitor. Earlier it has never happened - maybe the last Opera's update is the reason of this issue? Anyone?

  • @voyageur1 Hey, Im not sure if this is a windows issue or an Opera issue, but the problem only occurs with Opera after the latest update to version 75.0.3969.149.
    However this fixed it for me:

    1. Hold down the Windows Key, then press “D“. Repeat these steps to see if it makes the window you are looking for reappear.

    2. Alternately, you can right-click a blank area of the taskbar, then choose “Show the desktop“, then repeat.

  • @jiafoongwee Thx - I will try this, when the problem appears again 🙂

  • Opera opens onto taskbar but does not open on screen.

    I have uninstalled and downloaded 3 times, restarting computer.
    No problems with any of this
    Have removed any remaining residual parts of the program.
    Tried doing all this with anti-virus disable

    I still can not get Opera to show on my monitor.

    Use Windows 10

  • @jiafoongwee It works! You are genius! Thank you 😃

  • Lol, i tried shortcut for windows key+arrows it didnt work, had to create a thread. untill i read this one and tried windows+D, which solved my issue, f... A. Appreciate it man.

    Twice pressing Windows Key + D fixed this for me, after trying lots of much more technical fixes 😃

    Thanks!

  • Hi, as I see the problem is because opera opens outside the display borders. Thats why some times changing the resolution, or setting for the graphic cards can resolve it - all open windows need to be recalibrated with the new settings. I resolved this problem by changing the display view from landscape to portrait mode. Then the opera showed on the second part of the display, which is invisible when it is on landscape mode.
    I use it on a laptop and also use second display. I have saw that some times opening Opera directly to the second screen, it opens somewhere somewhere on the screen. Not as maximized or last left. I guess it some kind of a problem with the positioning the opera window after closing on a different display?
