Shortcut for GX Profile
Storkki last edited by
I create GX Profile in opera for work and now i want set up this "browser profile" as default for system but can`t find the launcher of side profile for setting path to him. Is there way to do this? (exactly i want to set up different browser profiles for different apps)

You can right-click the pinned taskbar icon for the profile and then right-click "Opera GX Browser" in the menu that pops up, then goto "properties" and look at the target field on the shortcut tab for the command that's used. In short, Opera uses the same launcher as the main profile but just with a command-line switch to tell the launcher what profile to load.
See https://www.reddit.com/r/operabrowser/wiki/opera/gx_profile_default_browser/ for an example way of setting a specific GX profile as the default browser. You'll see where the ico file for each profile is at also.
An alternative is to ignore Opera GX's profile feature and just use a standalone installation for each extra profile you want. Then, you can use a utility like method 2 at http://www.winhelponline.com/blog/register-firefox-portable-with-default-programs-in-vista/ to set a certain standalone installation's launcher.exe as the default browser. You'll just have to edit ApplicationName in "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Clients\StartMenuInternet\FirefoxPortable\Capabilities" to say "Opera GX Something" (or whatever you want) so it doesn't say "Mozilla Firefox, Portable Edition" in Default Apps/Programs.
