Whenever I download an attachment e.g. to an email, the download seems to work but the Opera icon on my taskbar turns red and stays red until I close Opera. The download content seems OK.

I wanted to know why it is not possible to choose a search engine to your liking. By default there is Google, but if I choose Duck Duck as default, every time I open the Browser I always have to change Google because it opens by default. I also downloaded the Duck duck extension and activated it but it doesn't open on next start. Can't you modify the system?

I'm a new CN user and I recently installed the Opera on my pc.
- Can I set the newly added search engine(like bing or yandex) as the default search engine?
- How can I delete a search engine from the default search engine list?
Baidu is what I refuse to use, I don't even want to see it.
Hope your reply, thanks.

- No, Opera does not allow setting user-added search engines as default.
- Built-in search engines can't be deleted. You can set one of the other built-in search engines as default (which only effects searches in the address bar and from the context menu) and you can hide the search box from the start page (which can't otherwise be changed).
In the past it was also possible to edit the file "Local state" in the profile to convince Opera you were in a different country so you would have that country's built-in search engines, but I doubt if China's filter would let you use the international version of Google anyway.
Originally, Opera was concerned about viruses and other malware redirecting searches, that's the original reason they prevented changing search engines beyond those provided with the browser. Of course, in many cases they also get a small fee for referring users to those search engines to help pay for further development on the browser.

How to remove the ALT shortcut that opens the Opera Gx browser menu, disrupts the player's performance in some games like habbo.

I can't change the search engine in the search box on a new tab.
It is Google
In the address bar I have changed it to DuckDuckGo
