Opera 12.16: How to set as default browser?

  • I tried Opera:Config and clicked Default. Am I missing something? When I installed it a few days ago to D drive things were fine. Then I renamed the folder it was in. Big mistake. I tried renaming it back to the original to no avail. Do I need to reinstall it? I tried a portable install....didn't make a bit of difference. Doesn't seem very portable. It sure would be nice if software makers could put ALL their files in one place.

  • Go to Tools>Preference Settings>Advanced>Programs.
    Tick "check if Opera is the default browser on startup".
    When you next run Opera it should prompt if you want to make it the default browser if it isn't.
