  • How do I get rid of Google in the speed dial search bar? I want to search with duckduckgo not google. I would also like to be able to
    delete the search engines don't want from the list of them.

  • Hello, I use Opera on my Windows PC, an Android mobile phone and an Android tablet.

    On all devices I have defined different quick selection favourites due to different purposes.

    I use the latest versions, I am logged in with a user account and synchronisation is enabled on all devices.

    On the Android devices I can access the speed-dial favourites of the other devices (own speed-dial button to switch to the speed-dial favourites of the other devices).

    My question: with Opera on the Windows PC, I cannot access the quick picks of the Android devices. It works the other way round. Where can I set Opera for Windows to show me the speed dial favourites of the other devices?

    https://www.sync.opera.com shows the devices, but the speed dials are not accessible (encrypted).

    Thank you for your answers and stay healthy

  • @ichbinhappy When you click on the tabs icon in sidebar, you don't see them?

  • @leocg Hello, thank you very much for the quick reply. I am glad about it and thank you.

    I can reach the quick-dial favourites on the Windows PC. However, only the favourites from the PC are displayed, not the quick-dial areas of the Android devices.

    As I said, with Opera on the Android devices, I can access the speed-dial favourites of other devices. On my Windows PC, I only see the Speed Dial buttons from the PC.

    Many greetings from Germany! Jan

  • @ichbinhappy Sorry, I made a confusion. Speed Dials from other devices can be found in Other Speed Dials in the bookmarks manager page.

  • @leocg Thank you very much for your solution.

    It's not quite as convenient as on the Android devices but it works.

    Now I am only looking for possibilities

    • to integrate the messenger Threema and
    • Ecosia.org as the default search engine
      as default search engine. I have already set Ecosia as another search engine (start with e in the search).

    Many greetings from Germany!

    If it has a web version, you can try enabling opera://flags/#sidebar-site-panel and it it yourself. If there isn't a web version, it can't be integrated.

  • @ichbinhappy said:

    Only pre-defined search engines can be set as the default one.

  • When I add SpeedDial bookmarks to one computer say Computer A, I expect to see the same set of speedial on a different computer (Computer 😎 where bookmarks syncing is turned on.

    However, as it is now, we get 2 sets of SpeeDial folders in Bookmarks, one for computer A and another for computer B. If I'm on computer B, I have to navigate to Bookmarks, then go to Bookmarks for computer A, and choose what I need. This is crazy!

    Synched Speedial bookmarks between computers should be transparent. If I add a new speedial in A, I should automatically see it in B or C or D, if same user is logged on and syncing is turned on. Without the additional steps of navigating to a different bookmarks folder.

    Am I missing something here?? Thanks in advance!!

  • @atangyp Nope, that's how it works. if you want, you can copy the content of other speed dials to your current Speed Dial.

  • @leocg OK no worries. Since I posted, I've found others postings similar to mine. Other users having similar problem and also requested this be added as a feature to Opera Browser. To allow us the option to sync Speed Dial across different computers. Since this feature is still not yet available till now, I assume that Opera is not interested in doing this at all. Will look at other browsers. Thanks.

  • Hello there! I got problem with Opera Search, when the first word in the searched sentence is "w", Opera automatically searches Wikipedia. How to turn off this thing, because it`s really annoying to me.

  • Hello, i'm new here and need some help. I have a Mac running on Osx El capitan 10.11.6 and can't upgrade it to a newest version because it's too old. my version of Opera is Version :74.0.3911.107. I just want to know how i can put Quant as my favorite search engine instead of Google or others. I have tried to ad Quant in the search engine list but i dont understand the % request and i don't understand how to ad Quant in the default choice list of search engine. Sorry for my english, i'm french...

  • @brunolompech It's not possible, only the pre-defined search engines can be set as default.

  • Is there a way to add custom thumbnail to speed dial icons?

  • @davem It's not possible.
