Accidentally Deleted Wallpaper and can't Find It

  • I accidentally deleted a wallpaper from the "easy setup" sidebar and it took the picture away from the speed dial page. I don't know how I got it tbh, one time I just noticed it there all of a sudden after opening Opera. But for some reason its just gone now. Its not on the settings page where a list of all the wallpapers available. its not in the wallpaper add-ons. I've searched the internet for it (i really liked it) but its like it never existed. Does opera keep track of all the wallpapers we've ever used stored up somewhere, like the recycle bin does for a computer.

  • What did it look like?

    If you deleted it then it is probably gone, though I'll have to check where it usually stores them if they are from the internet. Could be the file is still there somewhere - just no longer listed in Opera.

    If you right-click on an image one of the options will be to use it as your speed dial background. (Another is to use it as your desktop wallpaper.)

  • Do you know where your "profile" is? See Help > About Opera if you're not sure. In that folder is a subfolder named "themes", your images are converted to zip files and stored there.

    On Windows 10 your profile is C:\Users{your user name}\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\
