Opera Cache Path

The default cache path for Opera is:
Cache: C:\Users\Cesar\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable
How can I change this to a different drive?

@juliuscease Starting Opera with a command line should work. Check https://peter.sh/experiments/chromium-command-line-switches/

@leocg I have no idea how to use that. I am assuming you add that to the Opera shortcut? If so the only drawback is that it wouldn't work if Opera was launched from another program.
Anyway I found a better option.
- Delete the Opera Cache folder.
- Search for "command prompt", right click and select "run as administrator"
- Use this format mklink /d "Default Opera Cache Location" "New Opera Cache Location"
For example type: mklink /d "C:\Users[NAME]\AppData\Local\Opera Software\Opera Stable " "B:\Bowser Cache\Opera"
This creates a shortcut folder that will place the cache files in the new location specified.
