How to carry a session over into new Win install?

  • I have a lot of tabs open in my current Opera session and I need to format my computer and install Windows afresh. How can I carry the session over?

    I thought the simplest way might be to bookmark all the tabs into a folder, but there doesn't seem to be a bookmark all tabs option. There are simply too many tabs to bookmark manually.

  • Go to your Opera settings, check the 'On Startup' section. Make sure "Where I left off" is selected. Then close the browser, obviously you need to make a current backup, and when you restart Opera all tabs should open again.

  • You can save them as Speed Dial entries, backup your Opera's profile folder and then restore it after you had set up the new OS installation.

  • You could also install a session manager extension.

  • You may use sync using your Opera Forum User/Password and save also open tabs as well as your custom data.

    This is what Opera Sync syncs:

    But make a Folder Back Up it's a full bckp, so do not bckp some stuff like extensions and it's config, other stuff don't remember since I use Sync but make Folder Bckps, also easy to manage multiple profiles.

    To find the path:

    OMenu > About Opera > Paths >> Profile
