Download and install Opera
Download and install the desktop browser ¶
To install the Opera desktop browser, just go to our download page and follow the simple instructions for the latest, official version.
32-bit or 64-bit?
Regular 32-bit and 64-bit versions are available for Windows.

More than one installation ¶
If you are helping us by testing builds listed on the Opera Desktop Team Blog, you may need to change the installation options. As some of our experimental builds will upgrade your stable Opera by default, it's a good idea to change the options to install it alongside your stable version instead.
For a second, separate installation, follow these steps:
- Make a folder in a location for which you have write access (not Program Files). Make sure you name it so you will recognize it easily.
- Start the installer and click "Options".
- Change "Install path" to the location of the new folder you created.
- Change "Install for" to "Stand-alone installation (USB)". Note: This option becomes available after you change the "install path" field.
