Thanks, axiomatic one! It ain’t a good procedure, but seems to have worked. I don’t see that annoying Opera subfolder in my Downloads folder.
The developers of Opera should comply with Windows. The installation should be in the Program Files (x86) or Program Files (for 64bit apps). Installing in the /Users/Username/ folder is idiosyncratic, to put it mildly.
Also, the developers of Opera should offer an option in the Settings to disable automatic update and make sure no autoupdate folders are dumped in user’s Downloads folder. That’s how it works for all Windows programs.
Right now, I can’t update Opera anymore. I get this message:
An error occurred while checking for updates"
No problem, I guess. I stick with what I got. I haven’t experienced problems, other than that annoying Opera subfolder in my Downloads folder.
Best of luck to all!
