  • It is handelt as an "Opera browser assistant", as it is in the current version 63 and in Win 10 in diaem Ordner befindet:
    "C: \ Users \ [Benutzername] \ AppData \ Local \ Programs \ Opera \ Assistant"
    Eine Einstellung zur Deaktivierung des Operasymbols im Tray habe ich in Opera selbst nicht gefunden. Ich habe das Problem gelöst, indem ich den Windows Taskmanager aufgerufen habe (Strg, Alt, Entf) und im Reiter Autostart den Eintrag "Opera Browser Assistant" gesucht, maustaste angeklickt und im erscheinenden menu Menü den Befehl "Deaktivieren" gewählt habe. - Problem gelöst!
