Opera 20: How to delete the last browsing session?

  • I believe that a page freezes the new Opera. I want to delete the last browsing session so that the page is not opened at start. In Opera 12, I can delete sessions/autosave.win, but which file should I delete in the new Opera?

  • I thought there was a file with an obvious name, but I don't see it in my stable version ... then again I disabled sessions in Settings so maybe I don't have it any more.

    Opera 20 is Opera Developer, so whatever it is you'd have to find it in {Application Data}\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Developer\

    There are several files actually, on my Windows 7 system the path is

    C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Developer\session.db
    C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Developer\session.dbak (the backup file)
    C:\Users\Steve\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Developer\session.db-Journal (a log file)

    Alternatively you could edit Preferences (in the same folder) to disable sessions (as I did in Opera Stable)

       "session": {
          "restore_on_startup": 5
       },
    

    After starting Opera you can go into Settings and re-enable sessions.

    Just for curiosity, where is this option?

  • Thanks. It saves a binary file. :eyes:

    I suspect it's just enabling or disabling the "continue where I left off" option in the start-up options setting.
    I can't find anything else relevant, and there seems to be no more control over the process or any way of manually saving a session so you can return to it as you can in Opera 12.
