How to move the Opera browser cache location to a user-specified folder different than as it's now ?

Right-click on all of Opera's shortcuts you use (and right-click on Opera's pinned icon on the taskbar and then right-click on "opera browser") and go to "properties". Then, go to the shortcut tab and modify the value of the target field. You'll want it to look like this:
"C:\Program Files\Opera\launcher.exe" "--disk-cache-dir=path you want"
Then, make sure you never load Opera any other way than those modified shortcuts.
Just note that if another application launches Opera or your double-left-click on a file that's associated with Opera, those options won't get passed to the launcher and Opera will use the default values.
You could just launch the Opera installer, click "options", set "install path" to a folder on the drive you want, set "install for" to "standalone installation" and install. That way, all of Opera is where you want. You won't be able to set that Opera as the default browser though (at least not without using an external method).

@abdulbadi You use a command line. See peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/ for a list of them.
