Opera 25 Bookmarks Manager: Is it possible to nest folders?

  • I've upgraded to Opera 25 to try out the new bookmarks manager. It looks pretty nice but I can't figure out how to nest folders, one within another. Is it possible?

    I notice it's possible in the Bookmark Bar but that can't handle the number of bookmarks and folders I have (tried importing them from Opera 12, no good).

  • Go to My Folders and you be able to drag one folder into another.

  • Great, thanks!

    For others who want to do this, it's not obvious (at least, it wasn't to me). I tried to drag a folder into another in the left-hand menu and it didn't work. Neither did it work when I tried to drag a folder into another in the right-hand contents pane of the bookmarks page, after selecting My Folders. The secret was to select My Folders then drag a folder from the right-hand contents pane and drop it into a folder on the left-hand menu.

    To extract a folder from another you have to do something similar: Select the parent folder (containing the folder you want to extract) on the left-hand menu. Then, from the right-hand contents pane, select the folder you want to extract and drag it into My Folders on the left-hand menu. The extracted folder will now appear as a top-level folder under My Folders in the left-hand menu.
