[Solved]Move bookmarks with a bak file to a new Opera

Should be the latest Opera
Had several extensions
I had encountered "Opera_elf.dll" problem and I am not preparing for reintalling opera
What is important for me:
Saving bookmarks I had.
First what I have done:
Concerning Opera_elf.dll, I tried to replacing opera_elf.dll file in Opera but this created additional problems.
I have tried repairing software, but it didn't work
I have found this page: https://help.opera.com/en/latest/crashes-and-issues/
That suggests you can move files and folder like Sessions and bookmarks freely around Operas. Now... Is that true? It is common to get further issues when you try to recover from opera_elf.dll problem, so I was wondering what is the safest option for me.
So, if I:
Backup "bookmarks", "cookies" files and Sessions folder
Instal new Opera
Put backupped files where they belong
Will this create additional problems and can I prepare for them as well?
Best wishes everyone.

To clarify my post: My opera is dead and not turning on at all. I tried two different ways to repair it.
What I have access to is file directory on my Windows and I am trying to see what can be saved.
I am not preparing for reintalling opera
Am NOW* preparing for reinstallation
As my opera is not opening at all, it is dead. I need to reinstall it

So, I copied the files, as this comment reassured me
I have noticed that I can't uninstall opera either and I can't find it in Program files, only in Appdata.
I just downloaded new installer and installed it and it automatically replaced the older opera(80.0.4170.63) and it is just running like nothing happened, with all the tabs and stuff. I have restarted the computer and it has been fine.
I will write again if I will have problems again.
