Can I restore the quick access bar in Opera 18 from an appdata backup?

  • Hi, everyone!

    I just did a clean re-installation of Windows on my computer, and I'm trying to restore the Quick Access Bar with all my bookmarks from my previous installation of Opera 18. I have a backup of all the files in the old %AppData%, but I can't figure out which ones to copy back over into my new installation.

    Is there any way to do this? Any help would be much appreciated!

  • By the way, when I migrated from Opera 12, all my bookmarks remained in Opera Link. However, my QAB configuration (which has since changed a lot) doesn't appear to be stored online anywhere. Am I right?

    It worked perfectly. Thank you so much!

    Good afternoon. I have a similar situation: reinstalled Windows, downloaded from the site for the latest version of Opera, 18, included the Opera link, entered under its own name in the account, but the express-Panel changed to what I had before. How do I make and speed dial was mine and a sidebar to the bookmarks (as was the 12 version of Opera)?

    Добрый день. у меня немного похожая ситуация: переустановил Виндоус, скачал с сайта последнюю версию Опера 18, включил Опера.Линк, вошел под своим именем в аккаунт, но эксперсс-панель не поменялась на ту, что была у меня ранее. как мне добиться того, чтобы и экспресс-панель была моей и появилась боковая панель с кнопкой закладок (как была в 12 версии Оперы)?

    You can't have the old Opera 12 sidebar anymore, unfortunately.

    To get your bookmarks into a quick access bar just under the address bar, go to opera:flags (type it into the address field) and enable the quick access bar. Then go to Menu -> More Tools -> Bookmark Importer. This will retrieve your bookmarks from Opera Link, I believe. Otherwise you might have to point it to your old bookmarks folder or something.
