How to disable "download complete" pop-up window notification in Opera?

  • So..whenever I finishing download a file in Opera (OSX 10.10 / Opera v. 27.0),
    this little window pops up to the upper right corner that says:
    "xxxx" download complete.
    How do you disable it..?

    I have searched everywhere on the internet and in the forum and have read the official Opera user guide but couldn't find any real answers.
    I found this pop-up window highly obstructive and distracting and it's almost driving me crazy.
    Any help/answer is appreciated. Thanks in advance!

  • I cannot be disabled. It notifies you that the download has been completed.

  • Opera treats that notification as a standalone page. For example, when I open an image in new tab and shift+click on the image to save it to my computer, that notification comes up. Then I want to close the tab using command+w and this command closes the notification only. To close the actual tab, I need to do another command+w which is very annoying. That notification either should be disabled or needs to be improved.

  • This really needs to be addressed. It hinders web surfing, particularly when downloading images, and doesn't make sense in terms of providing a minimalistic interface.

  • Since a recent update I no longer receive a notification that a download is complete. In the past I would just click said notification to launch or view whatever I downloaded. Does anyone know to re-enable this notification?

    As a work around, every download I have to click CTRL+J to get the downloads tab open and use that instead. Any ideas?

    Then maybe someone should code in a way to keep it from popping up. As well as a "clear downloads after they're complete" option.
