"Save as..." dialog, favorites

  • Hi,
    How to change or add favorite folders and shortcuts to Save as... dialog when downloading or saving web files?
    It is really anoying when I have to dig up to the destination folder in order to save anything, every time I want to. I have only basic access t o drives on my computer, and that is all. No aditional options to customize Save as... list. Thanks in advance.

  • There's no such option. Don't know if there are extensions that do it.

  • On Windows 10 at least, you can right-click on a folder in Explorer and choose "pin to Quick Access", which will also be shown in Save As dialogs.

    Also, in "Organize -> Folder options -> General", you can set Explorer to open Quick access by default.

    I don't remember if Win7 and or 8 have that. or not.

  • Hi, Quick Access is more than acceptable solution.
    I have to admit, somehow I had managed to remove it time ago, using some tweak utility, I don't even remember why. I have figured out that, and got the Quick Access back, now it's way easier to save files. Thanks.

  • This one is a windows thing, not Opera. Win 7 has got Farvorite links, Win 10 has Quick Access. It works by default in a standard system.
