Alt-D no longer taking me to address bar?

  • I'm a keyboarder. Rely on shortcuts I've used forever. Up until recently, Alt-D in Opera for Windows would put the cursor in the address bar. Now, sometimes it does and sometimes it seems to bring up the Opera menu. Did something change?

  • @caramadra Here it still highlight the URL in the address bar.

    Try resetting your keyboard shortcuts.

    If sometimes the ALT+D keyboard command is executed correctly on your keyboard, but sometimes Opera's menu opens instead, it sounds as if the key "D" on your keyboard no longer works reliably.

    Depending on the keyboard type, a check of the key mechanics or a cleaning could help.
