[Solved]When I close a tab, I want Opera to close the tab immediately to the left

  • I have Opera 74.0.3911.75, in Win 10 Pro 2004.

    If I close the righmost tab on IE, Chrome, Edge, and Firefox, the tab immediately to the left of the closed tab becomes active.

    I've become used to this method for 20 years.

    With Opera, when I close a tab, some other tab is activated. I'm guessing that this might be "parent" of the tab that I just closed.

    How do I configure tags so that when I close a tab, the tab on the left becomes active.

    BTW: With my configuration, new tabs are opened at the extreme right by choice. With some browsers, I use the extension "New tabs at end".


  • @opera38 There isn't such setting.

  • I found an extension "SimpleTabOrder":
