Opera GX not showing up!
erkite last edited by leocg
As of yesterday, when I launch Opera GX, the startup animation and sound play but the tabs are all transparent. I cannot interact when them on my screen but they still are there. For example, I can right-click on my taskbar icon for Opera GX and launch Twitch and it will. I can hear the videos and everything but I cannot see it. I've tried deleting my session files and restarting my computer but to no avail.

I think I found a solution, also it worked for me too so try this:
Windows Key + Rand paste -
"%LOCALAPPDATA%\Programs\Opera GX\launcher.exe" -uninstall(with the -uninstall, don't delete anything)
Make sure that Delete my Data is UNCHECKED and uninstall the app.
Download an old offline installer from the links - 64 bit OR 32 Bit:
x64 - https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera_gx/73.0.3856.438/win/Opera_GX_73.0.3856.438_Setup_x64.exe
x32 - https://ftp.opera.com/ftp/pub/opera_gx/73.0.3856.438/win/Opera_GX_73.0.3856.438_Setup.exe
Disconnect from the internet and run the installers
Windows Key + Rand paste -
From there delete the
opera_autoupdater.exe, and do the same from
73.0.3856.438_0or similar if they exist
Run Opera GX normally

I found something that actually works for me. so mine also shows only on the taskbar but the browser doesn't show up on my screen. so what i did is i open another application and then i pressed windows + arrow key left or right so that the app that i recently opened will be put on the right or left half of the screen. and then it will automatically gives you an option to which opened app will go on the other half of the screen. and there Opera GX showed up and can be placed on the other half of the screen. then voila!
- open another app.
- Press win + left arrow (or right arrow). your app will be placed on the right/left half of the screen.
- Then choose opera to be placed on the other half of the screen.
EZ. Hope it'll help ya'll too.

@elgiearnn I tried with "win + left arrow (or right arrow)"
but the other available apps don't showed up.
So I took the other app and just slid it to the left (or right) of my screen and then the apps finally showed up
Hop it'll help !

I don't know if anyone still has this issue, but I found a solution. Just highlight your Opera GX, press F11 to go into full screen, open YouTube, select a video, then set the video to full screen and then back to normal mode. That should fix it, if not; you probably already had a video in full-screen when Opera forcefully closed, causing it to bug, just go to the tab of the last video you were watching and change it from full screen to normal mode, that should also fix it.

yes i know theres another post referring this, ive tried everything. ive tried reinstalling, resetting my pc, using the help from the other post, nothing worked. the program is just completely blank, you cant see anything. when you fullscreen it, it actually shows opera gx. but that is only if its full screened. when its not full screened it just looks like opera never opened at all, just a ghost app in the taskbar. i really need help because i love this browser and i dont want to go use another alternative

Hi i found the solution, at least this worked for me.
click on the opera gx icon and if it doesnt show up use this key shortcut Shift + Windows key + ->
-> is the right arrow key on your keyboard
this will move opera gx to your current monitor and fix the issue of opera gx not showing up
