How do i change the default bookmarks saving folder?

  • Hello, in this days i am switching ( permanently i think ) from chrome to opera, so i'm sort of new to its features.
    What i can't seem to understand is how to change the default location when adding a new bookmark using the ctrl+d shortcut. What i mean is:
    i would like all the new bookmarks to automatically go into the bookmarks bar ( or another folder ), but actually they always go into "Unordered Bookmarks". Is there any way to do this?

    NOTE: i have Opera 29.0 Stable version.

  • When adding a bookmark you should get a popup just below the address bar on the right. This pop up allows you to change the thumbnail that will be displayed for the bookmark as well as the location it is saved to. The default is to be unsorted but you can change it each time you make a bookmark to be in whatever folder you want. There isn't a way to automatically put it into a different folder at this time.
