Inspect element - size of the "inspection window"

  • Hello,
    I have a following problem - my friend was using my Opera browser and he was using it to inspect some elements on website. Now the inspection window is way too small and I want it to go back the EXACT original size.

    I know how I can resize the window, but I dont know how can I get the original size.
    Can somebody tell me if its possible to do, or maybe somebody just installed Opera and knows the default size of inspection window ?


  • In Developer tools, if you click the menu at the top right and goto "settings", there's an option to reset to defaults and reload. That might do it.

    If that doesn't work, you can look in the "Preferences" file in the profile folder (See opera://about for the location). Under root/browser/app_window_placement\DevToolsApp, there are position and size values that you could edit while Opera is closed. Use JSONedit to make the file easier to edit.

    To get the original size and position, download the Opera installer, launch it, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on your desktop, set "install for" to "standalone installation" and install. Inspect at least one element for good measure in that Opera. Then, close it and check its preference file for the values and use those values to fix your normal Opera.

    IT worked! Thanks!

  • @reoim Did you have to edit the file or did just the resetting to defaults in dev tools fix it?
