I want Google homepage when I click the four little boxes

  • So it can't be done. "Open Page on Startup" only does that at startup. When I click the little boxes I go to their "homepage". Homepage Extension only works for new tabs.

    I think this is a deal breaker for me. As much as I've found to like about Opera I'm an old guy and set in my ways. That "homepage" is not to my liking. Not at all. Getting to my email, maps, calendar, etc are the things I do on my homepage. Opera essentially denies my ability to do that w/o a hassle. I have enough hassles already.

    Thanks everyone for the help. It is always appreciated.

  • @chuchkyschild What Chrome's UI has to with Opera's one? Opera has its own UI.

  • @mmichel You can set a page or a bunch of pages that will open when Opera starts but you can't set a home page.

    opera is based off of chrome, all opera is is a modified CHROME. try again.

    @chuchkyschild There is no home button in Opera. In fact Opera doesn't even allow you to set a home page.

    That's not totally true. πŸ‘ΌπŸ½

    In Settings>On startup you can define a set of one or more pages to be loaded. If the feature Continue where I left off does not suit you, it may be a workaround

    Else you have the Homepage extension which adds a button for that.

    that page or pages are your start pages. that setting has nothing to do with what is the speed dial / home button in opera, i'll checkout the extension you linked to.

  • @chuchkyschild Opera (and Chrome, Vivaldi and other browsers) is based on Chromium.

    shouldn't you be addressing the person that posted about the extension, and not the person who said he would check it out?

  • Really? Thought I'd help you and I get grief?
