view and toolbar selections missing from opera 37.0.2178.41 menu button drop-down

  • A fairly new user, I have installed opera 37.0.2178.41 (twice actually as I uninstalled & re-installed) on a windows 10 home system and am trying to find a way to display other toolbars than the bookmarks one. When i select the menu button and the menu drops down there is no "view" or "toolbars" even mentioned. Also, the text is light gray and when I chose another theme in settings it wouldn't change from the gray one thats on there now. HELP. thank you.

  • Opera 37 does not have a 'view' or 'toolbars' section. You are most likely readying the help section for Opera 12.

  • Why would the developers eliminate something as basic as toolbars, except the skimpy main one? I just downloaded Opera, customized it to the extent possible, and I'm wondering why I can't add a Home, Bookmarks, or Tools button to the main toolbar.

  • Only way to add buttons is via extensions, and then only in the area reserved for extensions. Opera has no home page as such, so you'd need an extension to add one anyway.
