Change default search from google.ca to google.co.za

  • Hello, last year in Canada i bought my laptop and when i started up opera it asked if i wanted to make google.ca my default search engine, and i said yes.

    However now i'm staying in South Africa and i would like google.co.za to be the default. When i go to settings all i seem to be able to do is choose another search engine like bing as default. I can't specify the region for google. I have added google.co.za as custom search engine under "other search engines." And that works, but i can't set it as default. How can i set it as default?

    thanks!

  • Openm the file "Local State" in a text editor, find the following lines and change the country code:

    "location":{"country":"br","country_from_server":"BR","timestamp":"1467441489600000000"
    

    I guess this should help.

  • Thanks, that worked!
