Accessing bookmarks on new computer

  • Hi everyone. I've used Opera as my main browser for years. I've a PC with Windows 7 but am about to buy a new PC with Windows 10, and want to have my bookmarks available when I use a new PC. I've exported my bookmarks to an HTML file, and do I have to manually place them in Opera or is there an easier way?

  • @jo15d , you can import the HTML file just fine. Go to the Menu/Bookmarks/Import bookmarks and settings

  • "import bookmarks and settings" under basic settings should allow you to import from any folder or attached device.

    You could copy your entire profile also, if you wish, to a usb stick. The location is listed under about opera, paths, profile. But that is a manual process only.

  • Thanks for the help guys!☺

  • @jo15d if ya wanna backup more than just bookmarks.. this may depend on what version of Robocopy ya got on win 7 - works great on win 8.1 & win 10..

    Here is sum scripts i wrote with the Robocopy command to Backup your Opera Default Local & Roaming Data

    Note - This will copy the Original Creation Dates of Files & Folders !
    allows single file names and or spaces for longer names!.. And Wildcards (.) !

    Copy and paste it to notepad. Save as - Opera Local & Roaming Data Backup.bat

    Seperate commands on notepads if ya only wanna backup one @ a time..

    Example - For Backing up Local & Roaming Directory @ the same time..

    robocopy /E /copy:DAT /dcopy:DAT "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable" "C:\TEMP\Operan Local Backup"
    robocopy /E /copy:DAT /dcopy:DAT "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable" "C:\TEMP\Opera Roaming Backup"

    Example For Restore..

    robocopy /E /copy:DAT /dcopy:DAT "C:\TEMP\Opera Local Backup" "%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable"
