I'll start by saying that I know this question has been asked a lot but none of the threads I've seen have any answers.
Every few days/weeks an opera icon appears on my system tray - and when I close it, it appears again after a few days/weeks. I do not want this icon on my system tray and would like to remove it permanently - it's only purpose seems to be to launch and close Opera which seems pretty pointless.
My guess is that it appears after every Opera update, but that's just a guess.
- Removing it from the list of start-up programs
- Looking for it in the Services and Task Scheduler
- Searching through Opera's settings
- Searched through this forum, Reddit and a bunch of other sites
There seem to be a lot of people who have this issue but none of them had a valid answer.
Does anyone know how to remove this annoying "red O" Opera icon from my system tray? It's driving me nuts.
