How do I revert the old Bookmarks style?

  • Hello,

    I really hate how they placed the Bookmarks in Opera 20 and on (like Chrome). In the old opera (12.) you could organize it in folders and not just place everything in a visible to all bar right under the address bar.
    That's (among a few other reasons) why I still stick to the old good Opera 12. But as it's considerably slower than the new versions , I just wanted to find out if there are any ways to make the bookmarks organized in the new Opera the same way it is in the old one ?


  • Just wait a few more days. Opera 25 does have an entirely new bookmark manager.

  • The alternative even currently is a Bookmarks Manager Extension, like Chrookmarks for Chrome. You can place your bookmarks in folders, even hide the personal bookmarks bar, and open your bookmarks easily with one click, or with a keyboard shortcut. I have absolutely no problems with the current state of bookmarks, using the extension. And i did use Opera 12 for a longtime. Still, it will be interesting to see what Opera 25 brings.

  • The new bookmarks manager in Opera beta 25 is OK but its difficult to move folders - for example in Firefox you can move folders and drop them inside another (nested folders). Once you add a folder its difficult to delete it other than using the dropdown menu at the top. Also there's no right click menu. I'll give Opera the benefit of the doubt as this is Opera beta but I hope they improve it before updating the stable release.
