Default search engines

  • Hello

    I'm using opera 38.0 for windows. I'm a big fan of the search engine keyword feature - type g for google, w for wikipedia, etc. I've been adding my own and it's really helpful. My only problem is, I wish to add a keyword for youtube - obviously "y" would be my choice of keyword - but I can't, because apparently there's a default "yahoo" search engine set, and I can't remove it or change it's keyword. Is there no way to use "y" as the keyword for a custom search engine ?

    Thank you very much

  • There is but its a huge pain in the butt. You have to edit files and copy them around. I don't remember the exact instructions as its been awhile since I last did it. For a long time I just used 'yy' for YouTube. That will get you working until someone can chime in with a proper link to the difficult solution.

  • Sorry to bump an old topic - still no news on this ?

    Nope and it's a discussion for the Suggestion Box, where you can show your support for that change request.

  • Ok, thank you ! Shall I open a new topic there or can we move this one somehow ?

    (I've been trying to search for another topic on that through the search box on this forum but as soon as I enter something with a blank space it just sends me back to the index of the forum)

    There should be a few already there.

    Yep, it's an old issue. You can use an external search engine to search the forums for now.
