    C:\Users\Otti22\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable
    in example to drive D :
    because using a SSD-Drive

    Thanks to you

  • You can install Opera wherever you want. However, your profile and cache folders will be on your %appdata% directory, usually on the system drive.

    You should be able to use a Chromium command line to change the path to the profile folder.

    SSD drives are there to be used too.

  • Here I thought if you did a standalone install the profile was in the install folder ...

  • it least on mine it is...Opera Portable\profile\data

    Install: J:\Opera Portable
    Profile: J:\Opera Portable\profile\data
    Cache: J:\Opera Portable\profile\data

    Just frustrating that I can't set it as 'default browser'

  • Thanks for yours answers.
    At the last installing (yesterday) OPERA, Version: 58.0.3135.68, the installer don't ask, where to install.!! Can I use the Symbolic links?

    Is the Chromium command like the Symbolic link, e.g. Junction?

    The portable version is clear, may be the last end .

    I just chose Install Path and Stand-alone installation...Opera did the rest 🙂
    make sure of course you are installing the 'portable version'
    I've now opted to use opera this way instead of having it on my C: Drive, I much prefer it.
    I chose to install mine to a secondary drive where I keep all my portable programs.

    You can use to set Opera's launcher.exe as the default browser. It'll just be listed as Mozilla Firefox in Default Apps/Programs.

    Thanks friend for the useful tip !
    much appreciated.

    Tried several times but Mozilla Firefox fails to show in apps selection Windows 10 latest build but thanks again.

  • Thanks for all.
    I think, I must use the portable version.


  • The problem is resolved:
    At installation-time I dont see the option-field for the installation place. Now Opera is saved on D:\ . The Path for 'profile' and 'Cache' file are assigned with the the MKLINK-Command:
    mklink /J "C:\Users\Peter\AppData*Roaming*\Opera Software*Opera Stable*" "D:\OperaProfil*Opera Stable*"
    mklink /J "C:\Users\Peter\AppData*Local*\Opera Software*Opera Stable*" "D:\OperaCache*Opera Stable*"

    And Opera is the default browser.

    Thanks to all for your teamwork.
