That's exactly where it's at- 'C:\ProgramFiles(x86)\Opera\launcher.exe'... if I double click the 'launcher.exe', Opera browser does, indeed, open. Here's a screenshot of Explorer opened to location.

That shortcut is not using what I posted to create it with.

Odd. Try the full location below when creating a new shortcut instead to see how it works.

Code:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" http://www.speedtest.net/

Brink, that did it!... the parenthesis appear to be the difference. Note in the attachment below that the word

balloon reads 'pin to taskbar', rather than 'pin to Opera'.

Thank you, I'm grateful for your efforts on this trivial matter.
