[Solved] Touch not an option with “open with” when selecting a link

  • On my iPad when selecting a web link in another app eg. gmail, the open with list is displayed but opera touch is not an option. Safari and chrome are options but I do not want to uses these browsers.
    How can I add Touch to the list or make touch the default app for all web links On the iPad .
    Thanks

    on your iPad find the link you want, long press on it, go down the list to 'share' then scroll to the right of your list to 'more' then press edit on the top right and scroll down to Opera Touch and flip the switch to green and press 'done' then 'done' on the top left. its now on the list for you to open links with.

    Apple does not allow users to change the default web browser on iOS , but some email apps [like proton mail or Outlook] let you change the default web browser for opening links in emails. thats as best as your going to get 🙂

    hope all that helps

  • @ultravio1et Thanks very much for this. It works as a workaround so in future I just need to long press and then select “share” and then Opera Touch is an option to open the link.
    It still does not appear In the “open with” list when I simply select the link as apposed to long pressing It but I guess this is not a option on the iPad.
    Thanks again. Regard. Stuart
