Where are advanced settings? (to adjust download behavior for specific file types)

  • Hi,

    I just started using opera and still trying to configure it properly. What I realy need to do is set sepcific download locations for file types and associate downloaded file types with specific programs to start automatically.

    I searched online and always found the same guide: go settings:preferences:advanced:downloads.

    Well, this seems to be outdated. Even with "opera:config", I only get the dumbed down settings menu. Even with "advanced" options shown, all I can do under the "downloads" header is set one download location for all files. No file type specific download locations, no file type program associations.

    Are the advanced settings just hidden somewhere, or has Opera massivly decreased its configurability to follow the trend to appeal to the most idiotic users imaginable? If so, are there any extensions or code lines i can copy & paste to fit my requirements? Or should I downgrade to another Opera Version? If so, to which?

    Thx in advance for any help!

  • I just started using opera...

    Like :sing:?
    Which version?

    In __nu__Opera there's no such thing, I guess.
    Already suggested to adjust, in the "Download Manager" thread in Suggestion box.
    Otherwise there might be extensions, I guess...

  • Well, the most current version. Do you know which extension might solve this?

  • all I can do under the "downloads" header is set one download location for all files. No file type specific download locations, no file type program associations.

    There aren't such options.

    The settings are the ones your are seeing in the settings page. You can enable the power user settings to get a couple of new ones.
