How to disable auto updates

  • I now have the older version of opera and i would like to know is there any way that i can disable auto updates

  • I hope this is possible or, better, I hope it will be possible to go back to the previous version pushing a button

    if the new version has problem on our computer or we don't like the new features

    Older version being....?

    if you are talking about Opera 12 or older, there is an option in settings. Don't remember the path now but look in the security section.

    If it's a more recent version, try renaming the auto updater executable file in Opera's installation folder.

  • In Presto Opera (v12.xx or lower): Ctrl+F12 > Advanced > Security > 'Auto-update' box > select/click 'Do not check for updates' > OK

    It's called opera_autoupdate.exe

    so if i rename it to ''opera_autoupdate disable'' it will disable the update??

  • so if i rename it to ''opera_autoupdate >disable'' it will disable the update??

    I guess so.
