In the latest version of Opera desktop Web browser, a widget pops up whenever you want to upload a file to WordPress or a service. It adds an extra distraction and a ‘dismiss’ click, on the way to seeing your actual Windows Explorer view and your target file. This unwanted pop-up-like widget is going to become very tiresome. So let’s turn if off…

1. Go to Menu | Settings.

2. In the top-right search-box, search for “Show pop-up with clipboard and recent downloads when uploading files”, or just a fragment such as “pop-up with clipboard” will do it.

3. Turn this feature’s control-button off, via the blue button-slider.

That’s it. Exit the browser’s Settings, and your Opera browser should be back to normal.
