  • WHY is the Bookmark import grayed out.

    It must be enabled after you have imported your Opera Presto profile.

    No bookmark tool bar.

    You can enable bookmarks bar on settings > User Interface.

    Default font to small.

    UI or web sites? If websites, you can change minimum font size on settings > Websites > Display.

    ZOOM not permanent

    Zoom is per site afaik.

    Default search page not Bing.

    You can change it on settings > Search > Manage Search Engine

  • imported your Opera Presto profile.

    What is a Presto profile?
    No one needs to know my profile.
    Imported from where ?

  • Bookmarktoolbar: Open opera://flags/#quick-access-bar and Enable.

    Presto profile: On the commandline you can import oldprofile from Opera 12 into Opera 20.
    Call Operas lauchner in DOS box with
    launcher.exe --presto-small-prefs-dir="%APPDATA%\Opera\Opera"

  • To enable the bookmarks bar do not go to opera://flags, the setting is not there anymore. It was already moved to Opera menu → Settings, under user interface.

    What is a Presto profile?
    No one needs to know my profile.
    "Presto profile" is the nickname of the folder where all your bookmarks and personal settings are stored. You can find its location in the Opera menu/help → About Opera.

    Please check this thread for the explanation and instructions on how to import your bookmarks from a previous Opera installation:

    A good example of how your command should look like is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir="%APPDATA%\Roaming\Opera\Opera"

  • @rafaelluik

    In your case a good example of how your command should look like is "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir="C:\Users\YourWindowsUser\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera"

    Well, you are a mentalist, knowing which Windows is used and where the Applicationdata resides? Never! Sorry. 😉

    The envireonment variable %APPDATA% is the right and only thing to get the correct directory for the loggedin user.

  • Hahaha, you're right, I'll edit the post while I can. 😄

  • What is a Presto profile?

    It's the profile (folder) of Opera 12.xx and older.

  • Version 20 has Speed Dial as the bookmarks/folders default now; but you can easily get the "Bookmarks Extension" that is the old style.
    •Pull down the menu in upper left
    •Click "Get extensions"
    •Search "Bookmarks Manager"
    •Click Install
    •This puts a bookmark icon in the upper right of the browser
    •Click "Import/Backup
    •Choose your saved bookmark.html file

  • falconep, Thanks! I just started Opera with the 20 version so I had no prior version w/Presto profile. Your easy to follow instructions were simple enough that I could relay them to a friend over the phone....w/SUCCESS! For us both! Thanks again!
