Can I put ' operaprefs.ini' in any folder I like such as google drive ?

  • Hello,

    operaprefs.ini seems is a serious file if I am not mistaken........

    Can I put this file out of it's default location share this file "ACROSS" all my different copies using cloud sync such as Google Drive or Dropbox ?

    What I understood at least index.ini is definitely NOT ALLOW to put any places but only it's own location

    Hope operaprefs.ini is not like that.

    Thank you very much.

  • If you move operaprefs.ini, you will need to use a commandline argument to tell Opera where it is. But beyond that, if you are trying to use the same exact file on multiple computers then everything needs to be the same on all machines. If you download a file on one machine and save it to a folder that doesn't exist on the other(s) then the Save dialog will mess up on those other computers - it is not safe to share operaprefs.ini between systems.
