How to keep the appearance and settings of 12.02 when updating to newer versions.

  • I like the appearance and settings of v12.02 and wish to keep these when changing to a newer version. The speed-dial-tile thing is a PITA and I've disabled it in my old version. I also have all my bookmarks in a list on the left side which the later versions don't allow.
    Also does anyone know how to get a new tab to open straight to Google? [I've disable Speed dial]
    I'm using Windows 7/64 on a desktop.

    Any suggestions? Thanks.

  • You haven't told us which newer version of Opera you are trying to make these changes to. That matters.

  • Sorry, my mistake. I've tried v19 to v23 without success.

  • You can't use (most of) your Presto settings on the new browser.
    Though you can use both browsers on the same system/user - like your current 12 and a Blink (to transfer your bookmarks from 12 to 25 you'll need to set your 12 as the default browser before installing a 25 - unless you'll wait till 26 stable's released).

  • Thanks for the reply, I was sort of expecting that. I'll give 26 a go when it comes out.

    I expect many users are dismayed by the inability to keep the look of the earlier browser versions.

    You suppose?
    They are not technically earlier browser versions - they are versions of an (the) earlier browser*:sherlock:*
