Keyboard shortcuts in new Opera versions

  • I've been using Opera as my web browser for as long as I can remember. I've learned to get to most out of Opera with keyboard shortcuts. But with the new versions, they've all changed!
    For example:
    Shift-clicking a link used to open the link in a new tab, now it's opened in a new window
    Ctrl+{1-9} used to open a speed dial link. Now it doesn't do anything!

    And the most annoying change! Ctrl+tab used to cycle through your LAST USED tabs, now it just cycles through all the tabs in order...

    And probably many more I can't remember now.

    Is there any way to use the old keyboard shortcuts and general behavior of the old versions of opera in the new versions?

  • And the most annoying change! Ctrl+tab used to cycle through your LAST USED tabs, now it just cycles through all the tabs in order...
    Open the page opera:flags and look for "tab cycling".

    Shift-clicking a link used to open the link in a new tab, now it's opened in a new window
    Ctrl+Shift+click and Shift+Middle-click works.

    Ctrl+{1-9} used to open a speed dial link. Now it doesn't do anything!
    Yep. 😕

  • Thank you rafaelluik! Now let's hope they fix the speed dial shortcuts.. 🙂

  • Ctrl+Shift+click and Shift+Middle-click works.

    But not like before.

    Now, it opens a tab up and shifts focus to that tab, where as before, it opened it in the background. Not a total deal breaker for me but I sure don't like it. Sure I can use the right-click option of "Open link in new tab." But that is sooo much slower.

    OOPS. Just discovered (By accident) that I can use ctrl-click to open in the background. Good deal.

    2 big keyboard shortcuts I used all the time.

    alt-a close page and switch to next page
    alt-z reopen page

    Sure wish I could have those 2 back.
