[Solved]How do I remove a search engine I've just added?

  • I added a search engine to the list of search engines.

    How did I do that? I went to the website. I long-tapped on the search box. In the window that appears at the bottom, I chose "Add search engine...". That search engine now appears below the list prepopulated with Google, Yahoo, Bing, DuckDuckGo, Amazon, eBay, iMdb, Wikipedia.

    How do I remove the search engine I've just added?
    I can't find a way to do it in the Settings.

    Samsung S9+
    Android Pie
    Opera 53.0.2569.14117

  • @raspythroat I think you can try installing the desktop browser of Opera. Then login and for example sort and manage your bookmarks. Like making them alphabetical order, and manage search engines hopefully.

  • @ginger1984 I have Opera on my Linux browser. I took a look Settings>search_engines. Unfortunately, search engines are not synced. So no way to use a desktop Opera to remove a search engine in android opera.

  • @raspythroat In this case both Opera Mobile and Opera Desktop have to be adapted to what I actually too would like much. Always used desktop to organize and mobile as daily use. Will vote you up, since development team of mobile and desktop as well should pick it up.

  • Just swipe it to the right...

  • @polo-naref Thanks! That did the trick! (Wish I could delete the prepopulated search engines like Bing, Amazon, Ebay).

    How did you learn that?

  • Don't remember, maybe on Reddit. But I have been searching for a long time too. And I there is no way to get rid of other search engines. But obviously, this is not bothering me at all. I just don't use them.
