  • Hello, I am on WIN8, using Opera

    Version information

    Version: 42.0.2393.517 - Checking for updates…
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 8.1 64-bit (WoW64)

    1. Is there a way I can view the cache directory (or locate where it is stored) - im more interested in KB/MB size than what it contains.

    2. Is there a way I can CHANGE this cache directory ? i have managed to change the DOWNLOAD directory - but i cant find the cache directory.

    The download cache is my F drive (which is Ram drive). When i close the computer, the F drive is automatically wiped.

  • The cache files should be in the \Profile\Data\Cache folder. You can see where the Profile folder is by looking under About Opera in the main menu.
    You can change its location by adding the switch --disk-cache-dir={whatever path you want to the desired folder} to the target field of the shortcut that runs Opera, after launcher.exe. You need to put a space before the switch.
