Is it possible to have the Extensions Sidebar open by default?

  • Instead of sorting my bookmarks on the Bookmarks Toolbar, I sort them out in the Extension Sidebar. But whenever I launch Opera, I have to go into the menu to make it visible. It's not a big issue since it's such a small task. It's just something that I prefer to already have open when I first launch Opera. I want to use the sidebar more often and add more extensions to it. Can this be done?

  • No. But you can open it with a keyboard shortcut instead of going to the menu. Ctrl+Shift+S.

  • if you set Continue where I left off, sidebar will be opened (if you leave it that way)
    but then you also starts with the tabs from previous session.... many ppl don't like it that way
    devs said that it will be possible to have start page and SB at start soon, but...

  • Some easy way to toggle sidebar would be nice. I was long using Opera 12.x, but now after getting the password manager to work, whiched to stable. I liked in Opera 12, where you could easily toggle the sidepanel clicking the screen edge.
