1. Type REMOVE into Windows search bar and open Windows uninstall settings
Locate your Windows 10 search bar on the bottom left of your screen and type REMOVE. Then start the Windows uninstall settings window by clicking ADD OR REMOVE PROGRAMS
2. Search for Opera among installed programs
You will now see a list of all installed programs now, so use the apps & features search bar and type OPERA to find it easier.
3. Start uninstall process
Click on the search result that popped up (Opera stable in my case), to reveal UNINSTALL button, then click on it. The second UNINSTALL button will appear, click on it as well to start the uninstallation.
A new window will pop up, that will ask if you want to uninstall or re-install Opera. If you want to remove everything, including your Opera user and search data, make sure to click on the little box shown on the picture below, before you click the UNINSTALL button. Then click the UNINSTALL button.
Now you just click on YES in the below window, to finish uninstalling.
4. OPTIONAL – remove Windows temporary files and clean Windows registry
Your uninstall is finished, but I wanted to mention this optional step as well. After every uninstallation, small amounts of data are left behind on your computer and if not deleted regularly it can over time cause your hard drive to be low on available space and the computer to slow down.
The easiest and most efficient way to delete this data is to use professional uninstall software, that is purpose-built for this task. Yes, they are paid, but generally cost less than dinner for 2 and save you loads of time and a learning curve.
I personally like and recommend a REVO uninstaller. You can get more information and purchase it here
Of course, you can do this manually as well. For this purpose, I put together a step-by-step guide that explains all of the necessary steps and you can find it here
