Opera 31 Speed Dial settings

  • How do I carry out the following operations:

    (1) Have website thumbnails instead of icons on the Speed Dial screen

    • and -

    (2) Have more than 5 columns on the Speed Dial screen?

    1. visit the page (speed dial URL) and choose thumbnail from heart popup (left-right arrows)
      Alt

    one of them should be page screenshot

    1. on settings page there's maximum number of columns
      I can set it to 11
      but that also depends on your screen size
      on my 1920 resolution, it fits only 8
      you can also zoom out from O menu or ctrl-mouse wheel/ (-), then will be more room, and it will stay that way

    1. Uninstall Opera 31
    2. Reinstall Opera 30
    3. Block auto updates
  • Okay, let me rephrase. I should have said, how do I change the Speed Dial thumbnail size which I was able to do in Opera 30?

    I seriously don't want to have to use the absurdly stupid method of zooming out because that reduces the size of the search box and whatever I type into it, plus the icons at the bottom of the screen.

    Not possible afaik.

    Don't know if opera://flags#default-tile-width and/or opera://flags#default-tile-height have something to do with it.

    Apparently not :(

    nope

  • How do I set it to thumbnails by default, for all and any entry in the Speed dial? Forever!

    Uninstall Opera 31
    Reinstall Opera 30
    Block auto updates

    Thanks - that's exactly what I ended up doing.

  • One more way:

    1. Uninstall Opera
    2. Install Vivaldi

    Where my Opera 12's bookmarks? Where much usable former thumbnails page instead this Metro's crap? I don't desire back to Windows 2.0. Where much usable configuration window with huge tree of settings? Where site specific setting window that are possible use with right click? Where are your promises two years ago? There not enough time was elapsed?
    I don't need just a Chrome clone. I had loved the Opera. RIP. I wish good luck in the upbringing a new generation of fans to narcissistic developers. Stupid audience for laze devs – this will fair.

  • There's a nice extension that does an old-style speed dial. As indicated in the comments, you can also make it replace the current speed dial.

    Only problem so far is you have to set your speed dial entries again.

    That's the best way so far

    That is a nice attractive alternative to the Opera Speed Dial. It doesn't give you folders for each speed dial position, but it can be made quite good-looking, and, multiple pages/groups are possible.
