Thanks sgunhouse. I accessed the download path in settings. Everything looked OK but when I set up another directory and tried to enter that path in settings, opera locked up on me when I hit [Change] button. Had to engage task manager and close Opera. Baffling. And I can't figure why IE 11 works perfectly with downloads and "Save As" and Opera doesn't.

Cannot r-click and save images or download filesOpera for Windows
If I access an image anywhere on the internet, facebook, etc.. right click and “Save image as”...nothing happens. No save box to enter title appears, all other functions lock up - I cant back out, engage other tabs or programs. I have to engage Task Manager and end task.
“Copy Image” function works. Can paste into Word and “Save as picture” from there. But that’s inconvenient and adds steps.
Likewise, I cannot download any files from any sources. The file transfer never starts - a green and white horizontal “barberpole” progress graphic appears and continues. I have tried waiting to see if a transfer starts but it never does.
I have had to install Internet Explorer 11 in order to get functionality, but I do not like relying on IE. Saving files and performing downloads work as they should using IE.
I have run virus scans from two sources as well as a malware scan. No issues were found. I like Opera and would hate to have to give it up. Any help is appreciated. JIM
