Adventures of 12.15 to 12.16 update

  • Respected Opera community and users.

    Opera is not my primary browser, but, from the very first version it was always used as one of my browsers. The problem I’m facing with Opera is reflected with the latest update, or should I say, the nature how Opera tends to update previous version.

    Since this year, very attempt to update later version via "check for updates/download and install’ never really gets anywhere, once Opera is closed and prompted to actually finish the latest installation, this never happens. So I manually solved the case each time, but due to very aggressive habit of forcing new looks, one that I do not like, I tend to be rather unwilling to allow for later then 12.15.

    But one has to update to the latest and now I’m facing some problems: How do I manually install the latest version, and point the same to directory of my present 12.15? Install simply does not allow any provision for choosing location of your preference. I wish for 12.16 to remain exactly the same look wise. This is how my 12.15 looks at the moment

    So how do I update this version and remain with all my present installed features, but most of all, with the same look.

    Allow me to wish you all the best in health and life for 2014.

  • Normally the installer uses the last installation directory. Run it, click on "options" and choose the one you want.

    Just update, unless something is very wrong your settings will be kept.

    In any case, do a backup before.
