Dropdown history on back button

  • In IE and Firefox, you can drop down recent history on the back and forward buttons, so you can skip some pages when going back or forward. I can't find a function like this in Opera.

  • On Opera 12.x : press and hold the back/forward button or press and move mouse down.

  • Press and drag down is marginally quicker as the menu opens without a 500 millisecond delay.

    The same trick works in Opera 18.

  • On the Presto versions of Opera you can also add versions of the buttons to the toolbar that include a drop-down arrow.
    🙂

  • Many thanks. What's the Presto version? A theme?

  • And am I correct that this help site will be discontinued in a few months?

    Yes and no. My Opera will be discontinued (see here) but the forums will be moved to another place at opera.com.

    Nope, it's how Opera 12.16 and older versions is called because of the browser engine that was called Presto.

    Hey, that works on 11.52 (Linux) - I had no idea, so thanks! 🙂
    Every time I have a new install, there's a routine I do to customize it. And one of the first things is replace those little arrows with the Back+Forward Buttons with drop-down-triangles. I'll prolly stick with the arrows - and the old Opera - but if I ever try new Opera and those buttons aren't there, it'll be one less thing to frustrate me 😉 because using mouse down worked great.
