Can't Close Opera with CTRL+W Keybinding

  • Hey! I'm fairly new to using Opera so I apologize if this is something fairly obvious and I'm just missing a setting or something, but I have an issue that's been quite frustrating.

    Generally when I close out of my browser I like to use CTRL+W to close out tabs individually, and on the final tab I would also use CTRL+W which would ultimately close the browser as a whole. When I try to use CTRL+W on the final tab that is open in Opera, it takes me to the Start-Up page and it doesn't close the browser from there, no matter how many times I press CTRL+W. Is there any sort of way I can change this?

  • No, not without preventing Ctrl-W from closing tabs. Opera is designed so that closing the last tab does not automatically close the browser. Though perhaps there's an extension which would change that - I don't know.
