V7 Tabs

  • Here you can post comments about V7 Tabs extension, created by vux777

  • The Opera 66.0.3494.0 update has changed the way the sidebar is handled. The Extensions sidebar is now merged into the Sidebar.

    • If the browser is set in "Dark Mode", then the tabs are displayed with black text on a dark grey background, rather than white text on a dark grey background.
    • The "options/settings" icon at the bottom of the V7tabs window no longer brings up the settings window.
    • Scaling (Clicking -, 100%, +) no longer works on the tabs, only on the web page.
  • Same here. Goodbye-e Opera for doing what. I`m moving to Vivaldi - The king of vertical tabs.

  • If you don't want to maintain this extension, would you be willing to turn over the source so users can update?

  • Go to:


    and select Disable for sidebar extensions in browser sidebar.

    V7 tabs should now behave as it did in previous Opera versions.

  • @kechristen Yes! That takes care of the problem.

  • Dark theme does not work.

  • Phenomenal addon! I use it with "Disable for sidebar extensions" too btw... One concern I have with it is, since opera uses workspaces to sort tabs, the order of the tabs in V7 is messed up. It would be so nice, if Version 2.3 could show only tabs from the selected workspace... thank you, best regards!

  • @n471v3 hi
    I've waited for confirmation from Opera devs....
    No, it's not possible for extensions to do anything about workspaces
    there is no API or something, so that extensions can know which tab belongs to which workspace

  • The Opera extension V7 Tabs used to display at the top the total number of available tabs. However, since recently downloading the newest Opera browser and extension V7 Tabs to a new laptop the total number of tabs are no longer displayed at the top. However, I have also started utilising 5 Workspaces. Please confirm how to display the total number of tabs at the top again. Thanks

  • @geoffreya1
    I think you looking for this option on settings page

    alt text

    about workspaces:
    extension can't differentiate tabs based on workspaces
    tabs from all workspaces are under one window

    reload extension by clicking the button on top of the sidebar (next to 3 vertical dots)
    otherwise options from settings page might not apply

  • Caution! If you are using this extension now, refrain from auto-updating to Opera 70.0.X, as in this new version the opera://flags/#sidebar-extensions-in-browser-sidebar switch seems to have disppeared. So the V7 extensions can no longer be detached from the sidebar.

  • How can I move tabs between windows? Selecting multiple tabs and dragging doesn't work..

  • You CTRL-select the tabs you want to move, then right click on them and then in the context menu that appears you choose 'Move selected tabs to new window'. This works for me, anyway.

  • @nksoft
    addition to what @kechristen said...

    • there is a button on toolbar. It's actually a toggle between show all windows in the list or show only current window
    • Ctrl+click will select tabs and then drag and drop them on different window
    • in settings, show window selector will show separators between windows with number of tabs in it

    Thanks, I've already found that out.. So, it all works only in sidebar? Actually it's not super convenient because it's not really easy to drag outside the edges and after you moved some tabs all windows that were collapsed are expanded again.. And if you want to drag more - you must collapse them again. And also it would be great if it (selecting and moving) worked in tabs bar. Is it even possible in Opera? Also, selection should work like in windows so if you hold Shift and click on some element, you should select all elements starting from current element. Because of that I've missed 100 times already and will miss million times again.. P.S. despite these conveniences this extension is great, helps very essentially for me as I open pretty many windows and tabs..

  • Hi, in v7 tabs, is it possible to have a divider between the various windows? In other words instead of having one very long list of tabs open across all my opera sessions, I would like a divider to separate them. I have tried to right click and select 'this plus children' which does have dividers, but then you end up switching between multiple opera screens, which is not ideal. Any suggestions would be welcome.
