how to change default window size when opening a new window?

  • Hi

    When i want to open a second or third window in Opera... it keeps opening up a new window in a 1500 width by 800 high page...basically a big rectangle....I don't want this. I just want a simple 1500 high x 800 wide....i've latest opera and win 10..

    thanks![alt text](image https://i.ibb.co/H27Vx1Y/2021-04-03-112924.jpg)2021-04-03_112924.jpg

  • @pointbob i guess no one considers this an issue?

    No one does have your setup 🙂

    Well, Opera seems to open new windows, sized by current one, except when base window is snapped to screen side - like your screenshot shows. This is partly caused by Windows itself - snapped window coordinates are internally different.

    I would try next:

    • drag your Opera main window into some other, unsnapped location
    • move-resize it to correct location (do not allow Windows snap it to side)
    • close-open Opera - should rememeber position
    • drag-snap Opera window to right side (like on your image)
    • open new window - what happens?

    If all this does not help, report a bug to Opera.

    Hi. Thanks for the reply..

    Unfortuanetly you lost me at "windows snapping"...i have no idea what you are talking about lol.
    I click on opera to open the browser. What you see is how it opens..I'm not snapping things...

    Sorry, english is not my first or even second language 😞

    In windows you can drag window to side of screen and then it 'snaps' to that side of screen - looking at you screenshot seems that you have Opera 'snapped' to right half of screen. Of course this may not be so 🙂

    If my ideas didn't work, then sorry - in my setup additonal Opera windows are same size that original one, just located at a bit different position - I just can't duplicate your troubles. Maybe someone other will try also?
