It’s always good to keep your browser up to date in order to enjoy the newest features and get the latest bug fixes and security updates.

Here’s how to update your Vivaldi browser:

Automatic Updates

  • When you have Automatically Download and Install Updates enabled in Settings > General > Updates > Show Update Settings, the update will be downloaded in the background and installed on next restart.
    Update ready message will also appear on the right side of the Address Bar when an update has been downloaded. Click on it and then on Restart to complete the update. 
  • If Vivaldi was initially installed for All Users (an advanced option provided by the Vivaldi installer), this setting will be renamed to Automatically Download and notify when they are ready to install and updates will not be fully silent.
    The updated version will be downloaded in the background and a Windows notification will display to inform you when it is ready to install.
    Clicking on this will trigger the upgrade process and you will be presented with a User Account Control (UAC) dialog by Windows to complete the upgrade for all users on your system.

Check for updates manually

  1. Go to Vivaldi menu button Vivaldi menu > Help > Check for Updates.
    When an update is available, a dialog with the changelog will open.
  2. Click on Install Update in the bottom right corner to update Vivaldi.

Download latest version from the web

Visit Vivaldi.com, download the latest version and install it to the same location with the same settings as the current browser.


If after an update the browser doesn’t function as it used to, try troubleshooting the issue. It’s strongly discouraged to downgrade to an older version as it can corrupt the browser profile and cause issues, if not immediately then in the future.
