Saving an Opera page, automatically a new folder is created

  • When I save an Opera page (for example in my folder "philosophy"), then there I not only have this file but additionally a extra folder (as well in the folder "philosophy") with the same name (with "files" at the end). This is very annoying. What can I do to prevent that?

  • Two choices:

    1 In the Save dialog, click the file type dropdown and change it to HTML only. This will not save any external files used by the page, such as stylesheets, scripts, images and so on. (For most people that's a pretty useless option and so it isn't the default.)

    2 Copy this text and paste it into the address bar:


    The identified option will allow you to save the page as a single file, with all that extra content embedded inside it (for images - as data URLs). Mind you, this can be a very large file. If that's okay with you, enable the option and then restart Opera.

    I guess there is a third option - use the "Save as PDF" option.

  • Great, that's helpful!
