Transfer Opera Settings from old PC to New

  • Which files must be transferred from the settings folder so that they are transferred to the new opera - Exppress Panel and its settings, browser settings, saved passwords from sites, extensions? Nowhere is there information on the Opera of versions 60 and above, and the old method with wand.dat is of course no longer relevant. It is not the fate of developers to add this info to the tab About Program where the ways of settings are spelled out are not written on whom [no f words allowed] they need!!!
    Where the hell is the easy import of settings with a single file? 21st century in the yard!
    Help me!

    Best thing to do is to backup the whole profile directory of the old computer and paste it into the one created in the new device. For some things you can also use Sync.

    For passwords you will have to export and then import them or use sync. If you just copy the Login Data file to the new profile directory, it will not work.

  • @leocg Why is it so difficult? Make an adequate export in just one click! With what joy do I have to sync my passwords with unknown server? Where is the security guarantee?

  • @leocg Re-read 10 times and did not understand which file is responsible for bookmarks on the Express panel? I transfer Bookmarks and BookmarksExtras and my Express panel empty! How to tranfer Bookmarks on Express panel?

  • @vinogor There is no difficult at all. If you don't want to use sync, you have the option to export your passwords and use the file created to import them in the new installation.

    For the other data, you just need to backup your current Opera profile directory, something that you do in a couple of minutes.

    You can't do the same with your saved passwords because they are encrypted using your OS login data and can't be used in another computer or by a different user in the same device.

    About Sync see https://help.opera.com/en/latest/features/#sync

  • @vinogor Speed Dials are stored in the Bookmarks file.

    You need to go to the bookmarks manager page and copy/move your Speed Dials from Other Speed Dials to Speed Dial

  • @leocg спасибо, помог! Какой олень догадался их туда запихать для меня загадка. Разработчики Opera вы с каждым днем идёте ко дну, не забудьте одеть очки для подводного плавания. Как можно сломать то, что годами нормально работало, а сейчас баг на баге...стандартно раз в день Opera вылетает с ошибкой - не удалось обновить страницу...видимо баг репорты улетают в мусорку, это печально, буду переходить на Chrome.

  • @vinogor English here please.
