When you have multiple windows open in Opera & right click close on the task bar icon, it simply closes 1 window. When you start & close, is there a way to keep multiple windows open?

Thank you:)

Open browser? Open new Window? Open new tab?

Are you opening/launching multiple browsers (e.g., Opera). How are you using windows? How are you using tabs?

If you have multiple windows open in one instance of Opera then closing that instance will close all of the open windows.

If I understand correctly you will need to have multiple instances of Opera open with only one window per instance.

That way you can close any given window/instance while the others remain open.

Additional explanation needed.

I just wish, when I launch Opera I can pick up where I left with my previous session. That being, with multiple tabs in multiple (at least 2) windows.

I can do that in Chrome & Firefox but not Opera.

I use Firefox for everyday & games, Chrome for school only, Edge for Netflix,HBO etc only.
I would like to use Opera for games only, it takes up a lot of space &time meddling around with it in Firefox.

My AD(H)D requires separation, so I don't procrastinate or get distracted.

You can find similar links by using search criteria such as "opera how to restore previous session".

Then revise the search words as necessary to narrow down the possible options.

Thanks for the link, but it doesn't work with multiple windows unfortunately.

There be some additional options:

For example:

Research (google) "Opera browser save session" to find other similar links.

Likely will take some trial and error to find a way to keep your sessions open.

Or discover a specific constraint that limits how sessions are saved.

Do you use multiple monitors?

That may be a way of creating some separations of sessions (games, school, entertainment) while on the computer.

May not be able to save "full sessions" but may help with the general scheme of things.
