How to restore Opera last open url list?

  • How to restore Opera last open url list?

    Opera just swiped off all my previously open web pages and now there remained a new single
    start page only.

    Might there be any previously opened url configuration file for restoration?
    Some open URL's were not so easy to find.

  • @oberator Opened tabs are stored in the Sessions folder in Opera profile directory.

    I found Windows 7 :\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Sessions file name Tabs_13272742551362498 but is it possible to load with Opera browser?

  • @oberator One of those Tabs_xxxxxx files contains the current tabs and the other stores the tabs from the previous session.

    Make a copy of those files and, then, rename them so that the older one has the name of the newest one. Restart Opera and see if it helps.

  • @leocg
    There are 2 tabs file of same size 208 Kb but no old session file.
    Combining Tab file with new doesn't work, since Opera "last" is always restored from session file.
    With notepad I see that Tab file content is what needs to be restored.

  • @oberator You should not combine anything.

    Did you try renaming the session_xxxxxx older file like I said you to do with the tab file?

    I think I tried all combinations.
    Below is the list of files and tried use name of new session 07.08.2021 09:50 Session_13272742572809744 to Tabs file and session name.

    Those with date 06.08.2021 are expected to be correct, Tabs files looking with notepad contain familiar URL's ...
    Looks like this 06.08.2021 19:55 sessions file isn't linked to any tabs file.

    PS. A follow up to my previous posting.
    Looks like Sessions and tabs files in same folder are not directly linked with each other.
    I saved old folder and started using Opera with several tabs opened.
    Closing and reopening Opera restored today's tabs as expected.
    For testing purposes I renamed sessions folder to sessions2 and copied old 06.08.21 content into sessions folder. When results were not what expected, I deleted sessions folder and renamed sessions2 folder back to sessions.
    When reopening folder all today created/recovered tabs were again missing.
