How to import data from a regular browser Opera?

  • It is not in the import options

  • @Vanchencio Copy the profile folder from one to another. Or use Sync. Or check the option in the installer to import data from default browser.

  • @leocg Is the profile folder all the data in "C:\Users\user\Desktop\Opera Software\Opera Software\Opera Stable" ? Becuase I did copy it and it kinda makes my computer "consfused", if I pin the two browsers to the taskbar and I open one of them, the other disappears. Also, if I unpin one of them, the two get unpinned, so I think Windows thinks the two browsers are the same, what sould I do? I'd lake to keep my speed dial and extensions, which do not sync.

  • @tparavani Menu > Help > About Opera in both. Take note of the path to the profile folder.
    The content in it is what should be pasted.

  • When looking to import the only options are firefox, chrome,edge, but not the Original Opera

  • @adanjosue See above.

  • Hey @Vanchencio I just stumbled on how to copy your Speed Dial contents over. I could not find the file/folder name that contained the Speed Dial data in my Opera Stable profile. The Speed Dial contents do come over via Sync, but they don't populate in the "main" Speed Dial of Opera GX. Here's what I did.

    • So first, I synced my Opera GX browser using my Opera account.
    • Then, I went to Bookmarks (either in the Opera menu or Ctrl+Shift+B). Look for "Other Speed Dials".
    • Right-click in an empty space and click "Select All" (assuming you want all of your Speed Dial websites, otherwise, you can individually click the ones you want).
    • Right-click on one of the Speed Dial preview icons (I don't know what they are called) so you get the "Copy" command in the context menu.
    • Finally, click on the Speed Dial folder in the bookmarks menu on the left side, then right click in the empty space and click "Paste".

    Boom. You're done. Hope that helps a little! - Reyk
