Use image on desktop?

  • Hello everyone.

    I just recently got back into Opera, and I noticed that I can't right click on an image and set it as a wallpaper for my desktop.
    I thought, no biggie, I'll just find an extension like I had to do with Chrome. But there wasn't one, at all.
    This got stranger because I looked it up and saw that Opera did have this feature, called Use Image on Desktop, but now it appears not to.
    I even looked at the settings to see if there's an option for it, but nothing there either.

    Am I missing something, or did Opera really - for some reason - remove this feature?

  • Opera was rewritten to use Chromes rendering engine about 2 years ago, thats why its now missing. That said, you can install Chrome extensions into Opera with 'Download Chrome Extension'. So just install that and whatever extension you used to use with Chrome and you'll be all set.
