Where is the Home Page setting?

  • I see nowhere I can set the Home Page. The place it goes when you hit Alt+Home. Like every other browser. I just want any shortcut I can use but preferably Alt+Home since its the norm and I use it with other browsers. I suppose I could set up a keyboard shortcut somehow. I didn't want to use the bookmarks though. Seems odd they would change this. Its normally in the area that dictates what happens when it starts up.

  • Go to setting -> "At start-up" (or however it's named in English).
    There you can set a page to be opened at startup.

  • @mathias87 Not sure what version you're using but on my version 71 there's nothing there that can set the Home Page. There are these 3 options:

    Begin fresh with start page
    Retain tabs from previous session
    Open a specific page or set of pages

    I need something activated by Alt+Home.
    There's probably a way of making a keyboard shortcut but I can't use Alt+Home as that's used by something else (taking you to the Start Page). I realize the Start Page could have my needed Home Page URL but I'm hoping to get there with just Alt+Home.
    It seems very odd they would disable this.

    I don't want the browser to start with any particular page. It must start with a blank page. But I need to access that Home Page later. In other browsers you can usually set the Home Page but then set it to open to a blank page. That's what I need.

  • @helloyou2016 I'm using Opera 72.0.3815.148.
    What I mean is "Open a specific page or set of pages".

    Maybe somebody else can help you.

  • @helloyou2016 There is no home page in Opera.

  • @leocg Ok, so the Start Page is the closest thing. That's not bad.
