[Solved]Copying Speed Dial into a new install

  • I've been using the betas for a long time and want to switch over to the public version with a clean install, while keeping my Speed Dial. Is there a way before uninstalling the beta to keep the SD to copy into the new install? Thanks,

  • Copying over the Bookmarks and BookmarksExtra files should do it.

    Or, you could goto opera://bookmarks, export and then import.

    You could use sync to get them into the "other speed dials" folder in bookmarks and then copy them to the speed dial page in bookmarks.

  • Thanks. Let me add to that. Is there a way to save...

    • ad blocking exclusions
    • Auto fill: passwords, payment methods, addresses
    • etc.
  • @genegold Better to copy the whole profile folder. Or use sync.

  • @leocg Is the Profile folder now considered the entire folder under AppData\Roaming\Opera Software?

  • @leocg Ok, that worked, thanks, and so far has gotten rid of a few page loading and page appearance quirks that had developed over time in my beta install.

    With the beta, on my desktop icon (Properties) and in a bookmark program I used, I had the following syntax for launching Opera:
    \launcher.exe --alt-high-dpi-setting=90 -noautoupdate -- "%1"

    First, I'm not sure it's needed anymore, but in any case that syntax is not working now, perhaps because the quote marks aren't quite correct. Any suggestions?
