    will I have to reinstall all my programs after it?
    No. Repair install allows you to keep all your files, settings and apps.

    No more ideas from me except pin Opera to your taskbar instead and delete the one in Start Menu tile.
    Sorry.

    Since you mentioned it.
    How about unpin it from Start > wait a while > repin it back to Start ?

    I unpinned it a few minutes ago. ill pin it back tomorrow or so, maybe a few restarts between then and now will fix it.

    It appears to be a Opera issue, not Windows.

    Have you tried asking in Opera support forum ?

    @mm75
    Try right clicking the tile, select "More", then select "Open file location".
    This will bring you to C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs where all the pinned program shortcuts are stored.
    Select Opera, and delete it.

    Then go find Opera's .exe file in Program files if it's 64bit or Program files(x86) if it's 32bit.
    Right click the .exe file and select pin to start.
    It may take a couple of tries to get it to pin, or even a reboot first.

    Then see if you have the correct looking tile.
