Opera sync - renaming device possible?

  • Is it possible to rename your device to a more meaningful name? If so how, I can't find a way to do it. Thanks

  • You would have to literally rename the device - Opera uses the name the device identifies itself with. Not hard on PCs, no idea how to do it on phones or tablets.

  • I have renamed Android devices using Opera Bookmarks Manager itself from a SpeedDial Pc.

    • Bookmarks\Other SpeedDials.

  • Right now I have only one device, which is my PC, and it didn't showed up at the Other SpeedDial at all, so I guess what sgunhouse meant is to change your own device and not other devices.

  • Oh! Right. :rolleyes:

    Because there's no 'other' Opera installation with sync enabled.

    so I guess what sgunhouse meant is to change your own device and not other devices.

    Because as he said, Opera uses the device name. I just don't know if sync gets the new name automatically.

  • I guess it does, I changed the name of the computer and after sync, the new name showed up.
