Automatic update is an idiotic idea. I can disable such feature in just about every app — but NOT in Opera. This new version (66.0.3515.44) had the terrible idea of enforcing the automatic updating of the browser.
The problem is Opera creates an Automatic Update folder in my Downloads folder every time I start the browser. I update my computer daily to external devices. That crappy Automatic Update folder of Opera gets always backed up to the external devices. I DO NOT WANT THAT!
So, you should remove this automatic updating feature from Opera. It was like that in the previous version.
Opera version: 66.0.3515.44
OS: 64-bit Windows 10, version 1909
