Speed dial tile number in address bar

  • Hi
    I am using Opera 22.0.1471.50. In Opera 12 I could type the number in the address bar, press enter and then Opera would go to the page from the tile with typed number assigned. Is it possible to achieve the same in Opera 22? Maybe some extension?

  • Not that I'm aware of. Since the Opera Speed Dial can be expanded almost infinitely down the page, one would have to have a lot of numbers to accomplish that. Still, it would be a good feature request for the Opera Suggestion box. Even if you could just access the first 9 items/folders in the speed dial by number, it would be helpful. On ctrl and the number, the question is would you want to add that shortcut for the speed dial or for accessing tabs. We also need a keyboard shortcut to move through one's tabs.

    Now many of us are using the number 1 to increase the size of our font, and 0 to decrease it (having activated the advance keyboard shortcuts in Opera 22). So I think it would be good to have maybe ctrl, shift or alt before the number to make this work.

  • Thanks. In the meantime I have found some workaround using the "Custom Redirects" extension ( ). After typing a number in the address bar and pressing enter, I am redirected to the default search page with that number as a query, so I have just added some redirects for my most popular speed dial items. It is not perfect, but for now it is good enough for me.
