Multiple Opera browser version causing weird issues on Windows 10?

Hello lads, I've been getting this weird behavior with multiple Opera version installation on Windows 10.
I have Opera Crypto and normal Opera installed on two Windows PC (one running latest WIndows 10 Home, and another Windows 10 Pro), I use two browser to separate work & non-work tabs.
But lately there's a strange behavior where the normal Opera looks like it uninstalled itself, its icon somehow missing from start menu & taskbar, and I can't search for normal Opera on Windows 10 search. However, the program folder still exist and still listed on Windows App & Features, and I can still launch the normal Opera through launcher.exe or opera.exe.
Meanwhile the Opera Crypto still available on start menu and taskbar, and still searchable on Windows search; except that its icon changed into normal red Opera icon, and its name renamed to "Opera Browser", which the normal Opera originally use.
It's almost like somehow normal Opera browser went missing and the Opera Crypto browser took over normal Opera identity. This happens in two Windows 10 PC so I know i'm not trippin.
Has anyone else experienced this? I think there's a Windows 10 update and I think Opera security update rolled up prior this behavior, but this happens few days & restarts after those update so idk which one caused this issue.
Not a major problem but just confuse me out why it'd happen.
