No option to use Opera to download Magnet links and Torrents

  • Hi, I read that Opera Developer version can download torrent magnetic links. I do not receive an option to download in Opera as it shows in the Opera Directions. The only option was to use my torrent program. I uninstalled Tixati and now nothing happens at all when I click a magnet link. If I download a torrent file nothing happens at all when I try to click the file. I associated Opera with the .torrent extension....that did not help. Thanks

  • What version of Opera are you using?

  • Opera Presto (Opera 12 and older) used to be able to do it.

    Opera Blink (Opera 15+) doesn't seem to have such feature.

  • I downloaded the new Opera for Developer and enabled the vpn. I thought I could just download torrents internally but I guess this doesn't work? Does anyone know?

    Opera doesn't have a torrent client.

  • So how does one actually get OPERA to define UTorrent or any other torrent app to accept the Torrent app as the designated operator for Magnetic files?

  • In modern versions of Opera IIRC it follows the Windows settings for file associations, they can't be set up independently in Opera like in old versions.
    You need to associate the magnet files with µTorrent or whatever, using the Windows dialogues.
