    Thank for your help for modify this Start page...

  • @jclaude As already said some times before, the search box in start page is not related to the default search engine and can not be changed, just hidden.

  • Hi leocg !
    Thank you for your answer !
    Alas, that does not arrange me 😭 ! I become allergic to Google 🤢 and the page starting of Opera will finish by me giving sick 🤒
    Off course I can masked this Google Bar 🤐 , but it is well damage which the developers of Opera does not want to upset their sponsor 👿 !!
    Thank you

  • The Google Search box on the speed dial start page can be disabled.

    You just have to tick the following box in settings:

    opera://settings/ > Browser
    Section 'Start Page'

    Hide search box
