Chaning mouse gestures and tab display order

  • I just upgraded to opera 30 from . . . 17 I think. I had the last one where before opera switched to the new menu system it has now, from like 4-5 years ago. I really like that one, if I remember which one I had I'd download it, but my PC crashed and I couldn't find it so I'm trying to get use to progress.

    I mostly (90% of the time) use opera to read comics and webcomics. I used to have my mouse gesture setup to right click swipe right being close, and open the next tab in order for tab display order, so I could open up 30 tabs and swipe close them as I read them. Now, the "last active tab" thing something gets my out of order (sometimes it goes back, and sometimes it skips a few) Is there a way to change the mouse gesture setups like you could in old opera, and the tab display (open last, open next, etc) like old opera? Thanks.

  • Yes. In settings. If that doesn't give you the exact settings you want there are also extensions you can load into Opera that can further tweak it. I use one called Classic tabs but I am sure there are others that do similar work. Experiment until you find what you like.

  • For me, closing a tab goes left-to-right ...

  • For me, it goes left to right about 75-90% of the time, then sometimes goes back one or forward a few. = (
