Situation: I have two desktops opened in Windows 10. In the first I open Opera which is attached to my task bar.
Now if I right-click on the icon in the taskbar I can either specify whether I want to open a new tab or a new window or I can just launch the application generically.
Here comes the interesting part. Opera-people decided that the default action is to always open a new tab if there is any opera window already opened. This was fine and whether you like it was a matter of taste. Up until Windows 10 was released.
What changed? Windows 10 got the ability to manage several separate desktops.
([TL;DR]-People start here) With Windows 10 on a second desktop, if I start the opera application and there is already a window opened on the first, it switches back to the first desktop and opens a new tab in that opera window.
As someone who wants to use Opera for all things internet and always, but wants to separate different workflows cleanly, this is annoying.
- Either keep it the old way and make opera take multi desktops into consideration ...
- Let people choose in settings->browser to make the default action for the executable always open a new window.
