  • I am using several online services/apps where the keyboard shortcut cmd-w is really helpful. Therefore I did customized Opera keyboard shortcut in the past for: cmd-shift-d. It used to work pretty smoothly.

    However now it is not working anymore and when I open Opera preferences > keyboard shortcuts: I can't find the custom basic shortcuts for "close tab". It just disappeared.

    Solution tried:

    • I made a custom shortcut in Mac Keyboard preferences: it didn't override the cmd-w (it worked in Chrome though).
    • I used Better Touch Tool to indicate that in Opera cmd-w doesn't do anything. But I would like to have a shortcut to close tabs like cmd-shift-d.

    Thanks in advance to anywone that could help !

  • Hi @sky72

    This feature was disabled lately so right now it's only default shortcut left I'm afraid.

  • Thank you @kmielczarczyk for reaching out, it is greatly appreciated. 💡

    By any chance would the Opera team consider to bring back this function - that was really useful btw - so we can have a more enjoyable customization of Opera ?

    Best Continuity,
