How to add Bookmarks to the root of Bookmarks menu ?

  • Hello,

    I have removed and reinstalled Opera from my MacBook.

    I rememeber that I had issues to organize my Bookmarks into the Bookmarks menu. In fact, I don't want my bookmarks to be placed in a folder. I just want them at the root of the Bookmarks menu.

    However I don't know how to do that. I had found a workaround but I don't remember what I did. When I try to add a bookmark, Opera wants me to save it either on my Bookmarks bar, or in a folder of Bookmarks menu.

  • Drag and drop should work.

  • That's strange, because when I open the Favorites page, I can drag and drop my favorite to the left pane, but only in... Folders. If I try to put it under the list, the operation is not permitted and the favorite comes back in its original place.

    For what it's worth, however, I can edit/add favorites to the favorites bar, without a name, in order to see only the favicons. This works.

    I work in IT as a support technician and I am a bit puzzled. 😂

    Here it's what's happening :

  • Lately I have been using the extension V7 Bookmarks, which makes manipulating bookmarks easier. Maybe that makes a difference.
