How to resize Opera Window on Ububtu 18.04

  • How do I resize the Opera window?

    The border is so narrow I cannot use the touchpad to grab it.
    I have increased the border with on all windows but Opera seems to overrule the setting.

    The top menu bar does not exist so can't right click.

    Alt-Space brings up a search dialog rather than the default desktop menu that has resize on it.

    Any suggestions very welcome.


  • Go to settings and disable "Instant Search". Then Alt-Space will work normally.

  • This isn't a resize, but seems to open the window as full screen in Linux Mint 19 xfce:

    Edit launcher
    Change Command to:
    opera %U --new-window --start-maximized
