Opera 36 commandline

  • I'm trying to start an Opera browser by commandline with specific commands.
    After alot of googling, it seems the commands listed are for much older browser versions.

    Can some tell me where to look for a full list of Opera 36 commandline?
    Or somehow alter the INI file, which I can't find either in Opera 36

    For example, i'm looking to launch in fullscreen mode, etc.

    Thanks so much!

  • @jkelly Check those Chromium command lines, several of them may work in Opera.

    Opera Chromium doesn't use any INI file. In this topic there is a discussion about starting Opera with arguments in a file.

  • Thanks for the quick reply.
    I read through the article and checked all of the flags that are available with opera://flags.
    Unfortunately, there isn't anything for "start in fullscreen"

    I also tried passing through commandline "--start-fullscreen" and still no luck.

    Any thing else do you think would work for starting the browser in fullscreen?

    Thanks

    Not sure if Opera supports a command-line argument for launching in fullscreen. If it does, I'm guessing Opera doesn't use the Chromium --start-fullscreen.

    If you close Opera in fullscreen mode though (with alt + F4 for example), Opera will open up in fullscreen.
