Hi, running windows 8.1 and i use 3 browsers, my main (default) is Opera, the issues i have are opera is set as default browser in opera settings, but for instance when checking emails say overclockers uk i see something catches my eye, i click it and link opens in opera, not in win 8.1, it pops a box up asking how do you want to open this type of link, firefox, google chrome or look for app in dam app store

I have Opera set as default in all 3 settings.

Perhaps reinstall Opera ?

Hi, thanks for reply, I've tried uninstalling, different versions from latest down to older versions with no luck what so ever, opera just does not show in default program list and just repeats the same issues I've already posted images for, dam annoying

Sorry I couldn't help better. :(

Try running this batch file.
It runs dism & sfc.

After downloading it, right click it & click Properties & Unblock it.

Then right click it & choose Run as administrator.

When dism finishes, press the space bar to get sfc going.

These scans might help.

If David's last suggestion doesn't work, then you can simply associate the two main filetypes (htm and html) with Opera directly.

Screenshot (42).png

I'm hoping Opera will show up there when you select a filetype and click "change program" to browse for it. Note that I have altered my settings to use Firefox portable so it can be done.


Good luck,

UPDATE: I see that David had already provided the same view so I yield to his previous recommendation.

Wow... nobody is really helping with this problem.

I have the same issue in that I can't get http/https protocols to associate with anything but IE, and I'm running Superbird. This is really irritating.

Is there some way to add a program, any program, especially when not installed under Program Files, to the list of Registered Default programs so that I can set defaults for it?

The best I can do is point you to Opera Mail:

Download Opera Mail - Opera Software
What the ...

Are you serious? I ask about a browser issue and you direct me to a mail client? Are you serious?!?

I'm really beginning to think I wasted my time joining this site, as upon further browsing, the place seems to be, well, shall we say lacking in the amount of expertise I will require for any real help? I'll be looking for other sites that can assist me, as I doubt this place has the technical know how to do very much at this point. Users are too busy being pushers of Opera, etc. No thanks.

I'm browsing on Windows 7 right now. I just wanted to ask, when you click a link and it asks through which browser you want to open, isn't there an option to "select from a list of installed programs"?

The best I can do is point you to Opera Mail:

Download Opera Mail - Opera Software
What the ...

Are you serious? I ask about a browser issue and you direct me to a mail client? Are you serious?!?

I'm really beginning to think I wasted my time joining this site, as upon further browsing, the place seems to be, well, shall we say lacking in the amount of expertise I will require for any real help? I'll be looking for other sites that can assist me, as I doubt this place has the technical know how to do very much at this point. Users are too busy being pushers of Opera, etc. No thanks.
You said:

Is there some way to add a program, any program, especially when not installed under Program Files, to the list of Registered Default programs so that I can set defaults for it?
Opera mail fits that description. :)

Good luck getting anymore help anywhere.

Maybe you can find help here:

Thanks for being nice. :)
