Use my own page instead of Start-Page

  • Today I returned to Opera after a long break. I came to the Developer version to test out the VPN.

    I'm using: 38.0.2205.0.

    For years I have used a local web server to provide a page that I use in all my browsers, on-start and on-new-tab.

    I can't find how to invoke that page in Opera when I create a new tab. (Instead all I can get is something called Start Page which has:

    1. search
    2. hyperlinks (called Speed Dial)
    3. "News"
    4. with a predefined set of styles called themes.)

    I've tried an additional entry in the config file (Preferences). "homepage" didn't crash the system, but neither did it work.

    What do I do to get the page I want when I create a new tab?


  • You would need to install an extension for that, and there are several.

  • Thanks. Surprised I needed to do it that way.

  • so If you goto opera://settings/ and try using the on startup function to tell to use a specific page it still wont open your custom page
