ctrl+z command to Reopen last closed tab ?

  • is possible change this command Ctrl+Shift ⇧+T to CTRL+Z?

  • No. Besides, Ctrl-Z is and was Undo, it's just that in Opera 12 that included undoing the last Close tab.

  • and extensions ? i use opera 12.16 and have this command .

  • Control shift T should be easy to remember. With control T you Open a Tab. So with that Control "shift" T, you get the last closed one to open.

    For mouse approaches to the issue, you might look at Sexy Undo Tab in the Chrome Store

    or Browse ++ in the Opera store

    https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/sexy-undo-close-tab/bcennaiejdjpomgmmohhpgnjlmpcjmbg?hl=en

    for undoing closed tabs. I have Browse ++ and it gives you a waste basket 🙂 for the closed tabs. I haven't tried the chrome one.

  • It's even easier to remember the pretty much universal command to undo your last action which is ctrl+z and is much easier to do with one hand or without looking.

    I just remembered today that it wasn't working anymore. I hope customization will evolve at one point to make this possible since it was one of the things I loved in the previous version.
    If it's possible in firefox, then there's hope for opera who did it first.

  • I agree it's a little easier. But control shift T is not really hard. Now there may be some extension out there on changing the keyboard combinations. I couldn't find it though, but I did only a very quick look.

    I do like that in Opera 20 (and in Opera Presto), one can zoom with a 0, and decrease font size with a 9. That's extremely easy. Some of the other browsers require control shift + and control shift -

  • CTRL+Z is more easy to use and in my case ctrl+shit+t is not easy to use with a one hand , any idea of a extension to change keyboard combinations?

    Okay, I got it for you :))))

    And I think the extension is quite good. (many users and many downloads too). I think I'll keep it myself, so thanks for asking me. The extension does a lot.

    It's called Sexy Undo Chrome Tab, and you can open a tab with Control Z. 🙂

    You have to get the extension in the Chrome Store. So first you need the Opera extension, "Download Chrome Extension." https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/download-chrome-extension-9/?display=en

    With that extension, you can go to the Chrome Store shopping. Now in case you haven't gotten a Chrome extension yet: After you download the extension, Sexy Undo Closed Tab, you have to click on the Opera 20 menu, click on extensions, and then find Sexy Undo Chrome Tab. Click on install. You'll see then on your toolbar the icon for it. Right click on it,then click on options, and make sure you have a check in the box, Enable Control Z shortcut. I tried it out and it works. You can also get a running count of the number of your closed tabs, can open any of them via mouse, and more.

  • I just did too and it does work, but there's one very big problem I just discovered, it's that the extensions supposedly auto-update if I believe the description and there seem to be no way to disable that so it's very, very bad for some persons and now make me want to avoid them as much as possible until they fix this ridiculous behavior.

  • Haha, I want them to auto-update. And this will be perfect for @niczerus. I hope he comes back and sees this thread -- that you can do Control Z

    Now here's a link on disabling the automatic update feature of Chrome extensions. You can do it across the board, or case by case.

    https://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/chrome/l3zOZeO-5-M

    Look for the comment by RAAAKKON.

  • I justed looked at your solution and it seems it doesn't work for chrome extensions loaded in opera since the config file is not in the same directory(I don't have a google folder since chrome isn't installed) and I couldn't find it in the opera ones.

    I want to be able to choose to auto-update them or not since new versions can bring unwanted behavior especially with this extension since I had to disable a lot of what it does already and new options might be enabled by default without my knowledge. I'm also very uncomfortable with a software doing things without my knowledge or consent. It should at the very least ask if I want to update or not when it detects a new version.

    Now this also brings the question if opera extensions also do the same thing or not with the disable update switch or if that only applies to browser update.

  • @samkook

    Perhaps Opera policy on Opera extension updates governs BOTH Opera updates and Chrome updates. Maybe you should ask that question in the forum -- are Opera extension updates automatic, and try to find if there's a file related to that that you can delete. Now it's possible that file covers the Chrome stuff, since the Chrome store goes through Opera. Because you're concerned about it. Just as an aside: I think you want too much control. Just let go a little bit. 99 percent of what one worries about happening doesn't happen. And for that 1 percent, even your control may accomplish nothing. It's not worth the energy. Just accept the updates on these extensions. At any time, you can uninstall an extension. You can do the same with a browser. Keep a copy of your profile in a flash drive or elsewhere (I just did that), and let go a bit . . .

  • But it's not nice to tell people how to use or control their computers. It is after all their machine, their data and their hardware, and they are the ones who have to deal with the problems if any should arise.

  • Don't hijack the thread linuxmint7. I've had a long interraction with samkook tonight, involving a number of threads and different issues, so stay out of it. You have no idea of the context of my comment to him. The point of this thread is whether you can use control Z to restore a closed tab. The original poster, niczerus, specifically asked me for help -- to find an extension that would permit control Z to open the closed tabs. I want him see the answer, which was "yes," (I found an extension that can do it) and for that answer not to be buried in a thread that you come in and hijack. If I could send him (niczerus and/or samkook) a personal note, I would, but we can't send personal notes to each other in the forum anymore.

  • It's true that I like a bit more control than most, probably due to me working in that field, but automatic updates without notifying the user certainly isn't asking for too much and could potentially cause major problems since it's really not a trivial thing to do. I see tons of problems from updating a software in my everyday job and that's only with pre-approved and tested ones so imagine what could happen with something made by some user unrelated to the original product and with most likely very limited testing.
    It's even worse with opera since I've already experienced problems caused by updates in the past(nothing major though, but it required a clean install to fix). I even used to joke around when people told me they had a problem with opera if they just upgraded and when they said yes(which they always did), I replied "There's your problem".

    In all seriousness, I can't think of another software that does this(except maybe chrome which I find useless so I never used more it than a few hours to test it) and I consider this a serious problem even if everything will be fine 99% of the time.

    Looks like I'll have to spend time researching this tomorrow.

    It's good that you found a solution for the original problem though and I hope niczerus sees it too.

  • Pray tell how am I hijacking this thread, when I am responding to a post made in this thread ?.

    And who are you to tell someone to just get use to program/extension updates when they have specifically said they are not comfortable with them and wish to disable them, or at least have some control over them ?.

  • It's a slippery slope since we're going further and further from the original question of the thread.

    There's a relation between all of it, but it's getting thinner with every post.

    There's no point in starting a fight about if it's wrong or not to tell something to someone without bringing any point, it will get us nowhere.

    lem729 has a very different opinion than mine so we're both bound to say some stuff the other strongly disagree with. We just have to not take it personally and explain our point of view and the reasons behind it so the other can understand where we're coming from.

  • Two ways of getting the Ctrl-Z function by installing programs that can do far more: Vimium (Chrome extension which includes a re-open last closed function among many other things and permits customization of keystrokes), and AutoHotKey (general Windows keyboard-remapper/scripting language for which the script is: ^z::+^t - that will send Shift+Ctrl+t to Opera every time you press Ctrl+z).

    @Samkook: if you loved Opera Presto's customizability, AutoHotKey will blow your little mind. And the best part is - it exists outside of the application, and any skills you build are relevant everywhere and remain relevant even if your beloved application is torpedoed. And it doesn't auto-update. There are some open-source politics going on - ahkscript.org is the place to start.

  • One can remap this function to "Alt+Z", or to "Ctrl+Shift+Z", just follow the below steps:
    Close the Opera, go to the Opera's profile directory (find the path in O-Menu>About Opera>Paths>Profile),
    Open the "Preferences" file in your text editor, and edit it as below (for "Alt+Z"):

    `
    {
       "Keybindings": {
          "Basic": {
             "ReopenLastClosedTab": [ "Alt+Z" ]
          },
          "Settings": {
             "AdvancedEnabled": true
          }
       },
    `
    

    or (for "Ctrl+Shift+Z") as follow:

    `
    {
       "Keybindings": {
          "Basic": {
             "Redo": [ "Ctrl+Y" ],
             "ReopenLastClosedTab": [ "Ctrl+Shift+Z" ]
          },
          "Settings": {
             "AdvancedEnabled": true
          }
       },
    `
    

    Save the changes, and reopen the Opera. The value for "AdvancedEnabled" can be "false", or "true", it works in both cases.

    If you insist to use "Ctrl+Z" for this function, you can remap it as below:

     
    {
       "Keybindings": {
          "Basic": {
             "ReopenLastClosedTab": [ "Ctrl+Z" ]
          },
          "Settings": {
             "AdvancedEnabled": true
          }
       },
    

    However, you should be aware , that it will not work on the address bar, since it seems to be permanently assigned to the "Undo" function.

  • Thanks, it works, but it should be built-in to the GUI. Ordinary users should not have to search forums and edit code to make important changes like this.

    If you insist to use "Ctrl+Z" for this function, you can remap it as below:

    Yes, I do insist on using Ctrl Z. Users should not have to relearn shortcuts on every upgrade.

    How would one add a shortcut like "f, c, b" for this command:

    Execute program, "C:\Program Files (x86)\High-Logic FontCreator\FontCreator.exe"

    I have dozens of mnemonic shortcuts to launch applications, open text files, open the C:\TEMP\ folder, etc.
