TruOpera: Side Panel

  • In the picture above, there are two windows listed. The first window contains one tab, the second window contains two grouped tabs. So from the top you see the first window, followed by its only tab. Third line is the second window, the tab group (4th line), then the two tabs. Not certain how the name for the group is chosen - maybe just the same name as the first tab in the group.

  • I'm lost, dude! I just got that damn' masterpiece to make sure people understand what the topic is about.
    I'm not sure about your terms. I know what tab is. I thought I knew what a window is - but you said there are more than one in that damn' picture, and I've no idea now.:faint:
    [add] Now I took one more look, and I have a suspicion you meant the content of that particular... Which has nothing to do with me (see that first time in my life). [/add]

  • joshl, whatever your definition of windows and tabs, the snapshot you posted shows a highlighted entry.
    What happens if you right click on a highlighted entry like that one?
    Do you get a pop-up menu?
    If so, it should include a "close" option!
    🙂

  • Dave, I reiterate: I posted an image from the Web - only to show exactly what the feature in question is.
    As to the particular instance pictured, myself personally haven't used such lists yet in this panel - I only tried it once after the folks above started to ask those curious questions about 'Windows' folders or whatever they are. Those "highlighted things" may be interesting in cases, and are not off-topic at all, but they are irrelevant to my particular (initial) question. And I don't know. For now.
    Though, if you really need it, I'll check next time with Opera...-_-

    By the way, congratulations with your 300! :cheers:

  • Thanks, although it doesn't get me an extra icon. I'll get to 500 one day, what a pity all my posts on the old forum weren't counted!
    😞
    Sorry I was misunderstanding, I hadn't properly understood that screen grab wasn't actually from your system.
    Anyway, if you do have a list of open tabs in your side panel, try right clicking on their entries in the list and you should be able to fully close them from there, which I think was your original question!

    It wasn't. Because I guess you mean regular tabs (a list of which is blah-blah-blah); regular tabs are o'k 🆙 with me.

  • Closing the Hotlist ... F4 - depending on settings, F4 would either hide just the current panel or would hide the entire Hotlist (including the toolbar with the list of panels). The x doesn't hide the toolbar, since then you wouldn't be able to click to open one would you? ... though if you want, I suppose we could give you a custom button for that.

  • Hiding has always been possible, without Fs.

    You originally asked "is there a way to actually close/deactivate the page I've been using in that panel?"
    So, if you're weren't talking about closing tabs or windows from the list of them displayed in the "windows" sidebar/panel, what exactly did you mean?!
    🙂

  • The panel itself of course, sometimes his English is a little rough.

  • In that case I don't see the problem, my panels sidebar has an obvious large X top right to close it, or I just again press the panels button on my main toolbar, which I used to open it, to close it again!
    🙂

  • ...you're weren't talking about closing tabs or windows from the list of them displayed in the "windows" sidebar/panel...

    No, I wasn't talking about closing tabs or windows FROM that panel. 😛
    If I wanted to use the word "from", I would've.

  • But I can't seem to actually close a page in my side panel...

    ⬆ From the OP... :rolleyes:

  • Fair enough, but "is there a way to actually close/deactivate the page I've been using in that panel?" could be read as you wanting to close the tab or window by using something "in that panel"!

    Anyway, before we get into a pointless debate about how things that are written can be interpreted in different ways, if that isn't the problem either, what exactly is it?!

    I don't think so.

    Global warming...

    :lol:

  • Sorry, but this thread has now become pointless and beyond a joke.
    Goodbye.
    😞

  • It booed me just now again - though a coupl'a times before it didn't... <_<
    I've no idea what's causing such - glitching?
