Make Startpage.com the default search engine

I have a Samsung A51. Opera version screenshot included. Unfortunately I chose DuckDuckGo when I started, now I can't get it out. I would really prefer to remove it from my phone completely but I would settle for just getting it out of Opera. I want StartPage as my search engine and homepage in Opera for Android.
I intentionally do not have any one browser selected as a default on my phone, as I use different browsers for different things and I do not want my phone deciding what, where, or how I do anything. I don't use customization on my phone or any apps. I don't do social anything. I block most cookies, I opt out of all targeted or usage based advertising on every site I visit, every time. I request my info not be sold every time & usually follow that up with an email to the privacy email provided.
I don't allow most apps to automatically open links, I will copy/paste myself. I am very diligent about maintaining my privacy and not being bombarded with ads & junk mail. I don't want to be targeted, tracked, profiled, or personalized. It is a hassle but I don't worry about hackers or having my info stolen. I want my digital presence as small as possible. And I hate duckduckgo. Please tell me how to make this happen.
