default address in google maps on opera

  • Some websites do remember their own data - adding new data and telling them to set that as your "home" or "default" address should work.

  • Hi

    As I wrote in my initial post, my home address is set to different address to the one I want to get rid of. I've just deleted my home address & re-entered it, just in case....nope, although my home address is where I live now, the unwanted one still appears in the map search field by default

    Thanks anyway & any other suggestions welcomed

  • Did you try to select it on the list and then click on the X or use shift + del to delete it?

  • @leocg
    I selected then clicked X..........what would the difference be?

    I've just tried again using shift + delete but that doesn't seem to do anything. I can't select my home address without it opening, I tried R click but there's nothing. It seems that the only way to delete is with the X.............unless there's a way I don't know about.

    Just to be clear: my home address is the only thing saved in "Your Places" & it's a different address to the one I want to get rid of

    Thanks

  • Do you see the address as soon as the page opens or do you see it in a drop-down list to be selected when you click on the search field?

  • By the way, do you see the address if you use a private window?

  • I see it as soon as the page opens, it's there by default. Ditto in a private window

  • Did you already try to remove cookies and site data?

    The problem happens with a clean profile?

  • @leocg

    I'm not sure what you mean when you refer to a clean profile

    So far I've:

    • Deleted my maps history in both opera on my PC & my phone (so they couldn’t sync), but it keeps reappearing in maps on the PC
    • Checked opera autofill settings….there’re no addresses stored there. I turned off autofill & exited/restarted opera….same issue
    • Used CCleaner & selected all of the possible sections for opera, including "saved form information"....it also didn't sort out the problem
    • Installed opera on my phone, went to google maps & the address is not there. I uninstalled & tried with opera mini....ditto
    • Uninstalled Opera with CCleaner, including all cookies
    • Manually deleted all opera folders still left in C:\
    • Used regedit to find & delete all “Opera” or “operastable” entries
    • Reinstalled opera

    I’ve looked at my google account & the only thing I can see even vaguely relating to that address is in data & personalisation > web & app activity > manage activity - it tells me that yesterday I viewed the area around the unwanted address, but it doesn’t have that specific address, just the area it’s in

    I’ve just signed into my google account on a different PC & opened maps & the address is not there. There shouldn’t be any trace of this address on my PC after the cleaning I carried out above. I’m very puzzled that it only happens in opera for windows & only on this machine

    I’m not only frustrated by this, I’m now also intrigued….it’s become a puzzle to solve!

    Don't know if you deleted the Opera folders with your data.

  • Did you update your computer location info?

    Did you give Google Maps access to your location?
