Windows 10 Tablet and Opera

  • Hi,

    i have a Win 10 Tablet (Surface) and tried all browsers - for me Opera is the best browser when i´m in touch-mode (no mouse or keyboard).

    But these two improvements would make Opera perfect:

    • It´s hard for me to close tabs with the finger, because the X is to small - make it a little bit bigger - or is there a finger gesture to close a tab?

    • The scrollable bar on the right side is to small - also make it a little bit wider - not much - just a little bit. In Firefox there´s possible to change the UI with a ini-file - so i could adjust the UI - is this perhabs also possible in Opera?

    Otherwise - great job - a fantastic browser.

    Please make Opera perfect für Win-Tablets - Microsoft with Edge will never get it:)
    Thank you very much
    Best regards

  • It is supposed to detect Windows 10 touch mode automatically and use larger scrollbars and other items in the interface ... I would guess that it does, but isn't quite designed to cope with the high resolution of the Surface. If the menu is showing large enough for you to use that then it must be using touch mode already. Still, you could check in opera://flags to see if the appropriate settings are enabled.

  • Hi,

    i enabled "Touch events" and "Touch adjustment" - but the scroll bar and also the X to close the tabs wouldn´t be bigger or wider. The "menu" with back/forward icon is getting bigger - so i think i am in "tablet" mode with opera.

    How i said - opera is for me the best browser for Win 10 and touch-mode with fingers - but these two improvements would be very great - perhabs in a future release. Perhabs you could make it that everyone could configure the size of the UI in options? I know, this is not easy to implement - perhabs "experimantal" in "opera://flags"?

    Thank you very much
