profiles

  • How do I set up separate user profiles in Opera 20.0.1387.82?

  • Login on your computer using different users.

  • I mean different profiles within opera - not under different user accounts on the computer.
    Something that would allow me to run different profiles in separate Opera windows at the same time, which is what you can do in Chrome.

  • Not possible afaik.

    You can do various stand alone installs and use ecah one as if it was a different user.

  • You can rename 'Opera Stable' directory and make a copy for each profile, then run a script renaming your profile folder to 'Opera Stable', running opera then after exiting renaming the 'opera stable' back to your custom name. It works but it's kinda roughing it in.

    The only reason I'm doing it is because one game I play is seriously lagging in Torch or Chrome and unplayable in FF. Opera shaves off seconds off each mouse click. As soon as the lamers developers fix the game and it doesn't lag in Torch anymore I'm not gonna look back at the Opera - solely for the lack of multiple profile capacity.

  • Hi Horstwolfjager, you can create separate shortcuts to the "...launcher.exe" file, for each user profile.
    Simply add the command line switch "--user-data-dir', and the path to the profile, as follows:
    Shortcut to the first profile:

    "...launcher.exe" --user-data-dir="path_to_the_profile1_dir"
    

    Shortcut to the second profile:

    "...launcher.exe" --user-data-dir="path_to_the_profile2_dir"
    

    and so on.

    and so on.

    How to do the same on Mac?
    Thank you.
