  • So I just got a new laptop with 8.1 and the first thing I do is install a new browser.
    But it appears Opera does not play nice with 8.1 (I'm on 8.1 64bit, Opera 26.0 Stable)
    as the system close button (Red X in the top right of your window) does not work.
    Last boot, it was all three buttons that were unresponsive (Minimize, Maximize/Restore and Close) despite being enabled.
    Then it worked all fine. Then I restarted Opera and now I can't close at all.

    The computer is a Yoga 2, so I also wonder if the touchscreen has an influence?

    Anyway, it's not like I actually close the browser that often, but it's just so damn amateurish!

  • How do they work or respond when using a mouse ?.

  • Also, do the keyboard shortcuts work? Ctrl+Shift+x and Alt+F4?

  • Not sure, as it is 8.1 - have you tried to grab Operas Titlebar and drag it down the screen until it flaps out?
    I avoid Win8+ whenever possible - but from what I experienced Apps are not really meant to be closed (at least once they are somewhat integrated into the "modern" UI)

  • I had Win8.x & Opera worked flawlessly for me. Im now on Windows (10) Technical Preview & been using Opera since. Im not sure what the issue is that you mentioned but Im here to tell you its specific to YOU (and possibly others) since I didnt experience on my PC
