Opera Farce

  igk 15:56 05 Aug 2011

I thought I would try Opera again after a few years using Firefox,Downloaded and installed it and after a day or so found that for me it was a bit too complicated layout so I uninstalled and got rid of the bits that it left behind and now I have just seen that every image/photo on my computer now says TYPE:OPERA IMAGE when the mouse arrow is hovered over them !!! I have no idea what the hell that is all about !!

Right click on one of the images and select the program you want to use to open the images.

Sorry I should have said Right click on an image and choose 'open with',

then select the program you want to open the file.

Ton, Thanks but I know what to do,There is no option in that drop down list that says Opera obviously, just my usual programmes to open/edit photos/images it is just so annoying that Opera has done this for some strange reason Iv'e just put this up on Opera's forum and there are a hell of a lot of complaints regarding faults with this once great software ( I used it all the time many years ago)

Use Revo Uninstaller to get rid of bits.

It's not a fault.

Most programs do this, or give you an option.

As long as you know how to change it, it's not a problem.

There are 2 threads about this. Both state how to reallocate the file extensions. Regrettably this is one of the snags with Opera. I recently uninstalled it too. No need to use Revo to restore the file allocation.

Woolwell - so how do you restore the file allocation?

Snrub - It depends a bit on the OS but right click open with works with most.

In Vista and W7 then its under default programs and associate a file type and you can then scroll for the file extension and allocate the program that you want to open it with.
