Show menu bar missing.

  • In 48.0.2685.35 the option to show a real menu bar instead of that annoying start menu type menu seems to have gone AWOL, is there any way to get it back?

  • Downgrade back to Opera 12.16. No versions since the switch to Chromium have had such an option, and the last two updates for 12.xx versions did not include Linux. 😞

  • The last update before this one that I did a month or so ago (I think anyway) had the option and it was chromium based.

  • Are you sure about that? I have been using opera on linux since 43 was on the developer channel and I have never seen what you say. Maybe you saw it on vivaldi...

    A pic of that "menu bar" would help though.

  • This is too frustrating to deal with. I installed the latest Opera for Windows. I would provide the exact version but I can't seem to FIND IT!! The typical place is under HELP|ABOUT or SETTINGS somewhere.
    The prolem is: I inadvertently disable the main menubar and can't get it back. Right-click context menu doesn't show the "Show menu bar". The forums say go to the main menu|settings|views|preference........ there is no main menu.. that's what i'm trying to get back.

    After more than an hour to do a very simple thing.. i gave up and reset the browser settings. It reset my other preferences EXCEPT show menu bar..

    Wow.. wasted way too much time. Uninstalled Opera. I'll try again next

  • As the thread says, there is no menu bar. There is a menu button (or press the Alt key and release it), and from there choose About Opera.
