  • is there a way to make all links that are clicked to open in a new tab or is there an add on or extension or something, not interested in sorting or anything else that is available already jut to make Opera to open anything that is a link to open in a new tab, just like tab utilities that firefox uses (add on)????

  • Hi @oldfart1, you can use Ctrl+Shift+Click, or Shift+Middle-Click to open a link in a new tab in the foreground, and Ctrl+Click, or Middle-Click to open link in a new tab in the background.

    You can also use mouse gestures for that: Move down, to open a link in a new tab in the foreground, or move down, then up, to open a link in a new tab in the background - to enable it, go to Settings > Browser > Shortcuts, and tick the checkbox on the left of "Enable mouse gestures".

    Alternatively, you can drag and drop a link on a free space on the tab bar, to open it in a new tab.

    Finally, if the only acceptable option for you, is to use left click for that purpose, you can install the "Long Press New Tab" extension. To be able to install it in the Opera, you need first install one of the following extensions: the "Extension source viewer" , or "Download Chrome Extension".

    After you install it, you can select several options, e.g. the long-press duration, or force to open links in a new tab in the foreground 😉
