  • Hello to all !

    I have a problem with "Speed Dial" on Windows-XP :

    With the old version OPERA-11, I could use certain compartments and leave other in free places chosen by me.

    Ex : with the configuration 5 x 5, I had a line with 5 links towards the daily press, an other
    line with only 2 links towards Music sites and 3 space, then the following line with 4 links towards the Scientific sites and 1 space, etc....

    The empty compartments stayed and were filled only on MY OWN initiative, what allowed me to keep every line "specialized" for a given discipline, full or not.

    Now, with OPERA-20, it is impossible: if I free a compartment in a given line, it is automatically filled by its ex-neighbor, and I cannot manage any more "Speed Dial" as " I " wish !

    Hence my question : is there a regulation to be marked who allows me to manage the location of the links as " I " want ??

    Thanks for any answer 🙂


  • I think the best you can do is design a local home page, or just a blank page and use that URL as a blank slot as often as you like.

    I have a home page with some useful links on it.

  • The solutions I recommend are:

    • Add "about:blank" pages to the Speed Dial to make "blank slots", edit the title to the character Alt+0160 " " to make it blank.


    • Don't mind it / organize better / use Speed Dial folders.
  • Thank you for your advice, I am going to try to apply them.
    But it had been more logical than Opera retain the compartments organization possibilities of the 11-version !!!
    I do not still understand why compartments are ARBITRARLY re-organized without taking into account wishes of the users . In brief, it pleases me not at all 😞
