All my Quick shortcuts have disappeared from my startup page

  • @l33t4opera

    Thank you again,
    Strange things happening in that syncronization.
    The name I gave to my PC (MSI_GE60) appears twice on my android quick link page. For the full list you have to scroll vertically. If I scroll horizontally I get another quick link page with the same name (MSI_GE60) but with another list of quick link items. Those are the one's that I lost on my PC quick link page. The syncronization only seems to work with the first list. If I delete that first list (after having made a backup on my PC under "other bookmarks") (3 dots top right and choose remove device).

    1. Unfortunately my android is not rooted, so there is no way I can export that list, but it's that one I must have. Also that list appears in "my account" in a folder called "deleted bookmarks".
    2. I also seem to be unable to retrieve (export) them from within "my account" page to my browser (quick links).

    The speed dial was not disabled.

  • @jimbop If I understand you well, you have now a backup of your old items under "other bookmarks" in your Opera on your desktop, right? Why don't you simply move them from there to your "Speed Dial" folder from the bookmarks manager?

    In case you already synced your data again, and still you can't see your items on Speed Dial, please check again, if the SD is not set to be hidden.

    No, the items I lost are on the android but on a second quick launch page (with the same name on top) that page does not synchronize with my PC. If I put something on the quick launch page of my PC that content synchronises with another quick launch page on my android. If I delete that SD dial page and the content of my SD page on the PC and apply sync the content of the lost SD page (the 2nd SD on my android but after deleting the first it's the only one left on my android) still not sync with my PC. In my account (https://sync.opera.com/web/) I can find that lost content under deleted bookmarks*
    In case you already synced your data again, and still you can't see your items on Speed Dial, please check again, if the SD is not set to be hidden.

    The SD on my PC is not hidden

    I'll show you later some screenshots

    Thank you for your patience.

  • How do I restore items (bookmarks, folders with bookmarks in it) that are only visible in my "opera account" (https://sync.opera.com/web/) to my opera browser ?

    Given the fact that they are nowhere on my opera browser for PC (menu > bookmarks > and all the many subfolders) even when sync is enabled ? The items that I want to be restored are only visible in my account and under the different subfolders from the menu to access the bookmarks in "my account". Also many items under the subfolder bookmarks > deleted bookmarks. What good are these lists if you can't copy them back to your PC ?

  • Only bookmarks are not being synced? Or other things also aren't being synced?

  • @leocg

    Thanks for your reply. No syncing on or off does not help me, I tried it. Let's say I enable sync how can I get back those items that are now ONLY visible in "my account" (https://sync.opera.com/web/) under deleted bookmarks, they are nowhere at all visible in my browser (syncing on or off). Other things are not synced besides my bookmarks.

  • With sync turned off then, of course, you will not see them in your Opera installation. Unless they were already there before.

    It seems that you have a problem with sync. When you turn sync on, do you get the green checker saying that everything is okay?

  • Fact remains that I see items in "my account": many, many shortcuts and folders under deleted bookmarks that I want to transfer from "my account" to my browser folder "speed dial". All those speed dial items have vanished from my browser some 5 days ago. They are only visible in "my account" (sync on or off), but I can't seem to get them from there to my browser even when sync is on. Now tell me that's strange. Yes BTW I get the green checker when sync is on.

    What to do now ? Thanks for looking into this.

  • Try checking opera://sync-internals/ to see if sync is being done.

  • Yes it is done. But wrong sync. I don't recall if I already said this here, but here it is again.

    I have now two Quick dial pages on my android. They have the same name (on top the name I gave to my PC).

    Remember scrolling through the quick dial pages from the same source (another smartphone, another PC) is done vertically.

    Scrolling horizontally you get a differenbut with different content. t source. I named the QD page from my PC: MSI_GE60.

    I have 2 QD pages but with different content but with the same name. Only one of these syncs with my PC. The other page (with the same name) does NOT sync with my PC but contains "most" of the stuff I lost from my completely gone QD page from my PC from some 5 days ago.

    This stuff is also visible in "my account" on the web and is located under deleted bookmarks.

    How do I get this stuff "out", I mean "move" either from the web under "my account" to my QD on the Opera browser OR from my android device to my Opera browser ?

    Again thanks 4 looking into this.

    You mean in 'other speed dials'? If so then it's normal.

    One is your current Opera installation and the other is an old one. You can remove the last one if there aren't anything useful in it or after have moved it's content to your current speed dial.

    You can do it in the bookmarks manager page in Opera for desktops.

  • @leocg

    The bookmarks manager in Opera and the bookmarks in "my account" in Opera sync (of course when syncing is on) do not sync. I showed a picture of that a few posts ago. I also asked/said "How do I restore items (bookmarks, folders with bookmarks in it) that are only visible in my "opera account" (https://sync.opera.com/web/) to my opera browser ?"

    I will try to elaborate on this later, but in the meantime do not close this thread. Thank you.

  • @l33t4opera I found them. Thank you 🙂

  • @yvan-poz You're welcome ;-)

  • I still have no answer on the problem that I just can't copy the content of what's in my syncro page (the syncro page when I'm into my account) to my opera browser. And sorry to say this again but what I find in my account syncro page is not all available in my browser. That was what in fact was always assumed here.

    And than there is the fact that on my android device I have two different bookmark pages that have the same name (the name I gave my PC). Also this content can't be moved (only deleted perhaps).

    It's all ben mentioned b4, but perhaps this can't be solved at all.

  • The Sync web page is just for you to (more) easily see what data has been synced to the servers.
