Opera Newby Questions

  • So I just installed Opera on my Win10. I created an account with my Gmail address, then signed into my new account, and imported my Chrome bookmarks. I see where the bookmarks are when I go to Menu/Bookmarks/Imported Bkmrks from Chrome, AND I've checked "Show Bookmarks Bar". I restarted Opera and still no Bkmarks on the bar. I've even tried to drag my bookmarks folders to the Bkmrks Bar, but nothing works. What's up with THAT?

    2.) I was thinking that since you can import Bookmarks from Chrome, that I could import Chrome Extensions. Can't do that, and even when I try to find some of my Chrome Extensions in your Opera Extensions library I can't find those either.

    HELP!

    1. You need to add or copy bookmarks to the bookmarks bar.

    2. There's an extension that allows Chrome's extensions to be installed. However, be in mind that Chrome extensions are not officially support.

  • Thanks Leocg. I figured it all out. However, there's some other newby questions I have.

    1.) Why can't I change my font, and the tiny, iny size to a different default?

    2.) Why can't I change my timezone?

  • 1.) Why can't I change my font, and the tiny, iny size to a different default?

    Where in Opera are you trying to change your font?

    2.) Why can't I change my timezone?

    Opera uses your system timezone. You can change it there.

  • I found a place to change website fonts, but where I'm typing this entry the size is MAYBE 5, and I'm unable to change it.

    As for my Timezone, mine is EST (-5 GMT), and my clock is correct, but Opera says my posts are 4 hours ahead.

    Here in the forum? You have correctly selected your country in your account settings?

    If you are on daylight savings, the forum doesn't takes it in consideration. It's an old issue in this forum.

    Try changing minimum font size in settings > websites > Display > Customise fonts. Also, Opera may take your system dpi into consideration.
