Shift+Enter Shortcut change?

  • At least for me, it appears as though the shift+enter shortcut has different functionality now.

    Previous functionality, when used with a search bar, would open the results in a new tab. This was the case until the latest couple of updates and I have not changed it. New functionality is opening the results in a new window.

    Has this changed for anyone else? And, is there a way to change it back?

  • An update may have changed your "open tabs instead of windows" setting. If there is one that is. Check it out if it is.
    I thought the shortcut was Ctrl Enter though...

  • I can't seem to find an option in the settings menu about this. Maybe I'm blind. It's not in the shortcut menu (I even used 'reset all' there). And, I can't find anything that says to open in a tab vs a window.

  • I can't seem to find an option in the settings menu about this

    Because it doesn't exist in current versions of Opera.

    BTW, here the behavior is the same.
