Make new tab active

  • I've just started using Opera. Very pleased with it, but I have a couple of questions. I can't find how to set Opera to always make a new tab active. Ie when you click on a link and Opera opens a new tab, it goes to it automatically, rather than having to click on it.

    Is there a keyboard short cut to show and un-show the bookmarks bar. I want it when I start Opera, but then I want the space. It would be quicker than going into the manu.

    Many thanks.

    There's no setting for it. Maybe an extension can do it.

    Nope.

  • Is there a keyboard short cut to show and un-show the bookmarks bar.

    Yes, Ctrl+B

  • Yes, Ctrl+B

    It does nothing here.

  • My bad, I’ve had it as a shortcut for a long time and did not realize it was not default.

    Anyways, it’s easy to customize keyboard shortcuts in settings.

  • May be your keyboard having problems.

    What do you mean?
