Need some help new to Opera

  • Hello, I'm new to Opera and have some questions that I need help with. First one is on the homescreen of Opera you see Youtube Icon, Facebook, etc, how can you move them on the screen, say if you wish to put them lower on the screen or higher or just plain wish to change the order that they are in, I thought on an Opera video I saw you can do this? I'm going to ask the questions in separate discussions so not to confuse one with another. Any help with how I can customize my home screen would be helpful, so that I can rearrange them and unstick their spots they are in. Also can I change what the icon looks like?

  • What version did you install?
    Most likely that you got a Blink (Opera Chromium), while the video you watched was about Opera (Opera Presto). They are essentially different browsers - however confusingly sharing the same name*:/*

  • how can you move them on the screen, say if you wish to put them lower on the screen or higher or just plain wish to change the order that they are in

    Usually you can drag them to where you want.

    Also can I change what the icon looks like?

    Not possible atm.

  • Hi there, thanks for writing.

    I have Version:

    26.0.1656.24 - Opera is up to date
    Update stream: Stable
    System: Windows 7 64-bit (WoW64)
    Browser identification

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64) AppleWebKit/537.36 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/39.0.2171.65 Safari/537.36 OPR/26.0.1656.24

  • I don't use the start page, but checked it out just for the heck of it. At first, it appears that I can just drag those icons where I want them. But as soon as I move them into position, they bounce right back. Is that what's happening to you? I eventually got them to move, although damn if I know what I did.

  • You have to drag them and put them somewhere or it will go back.
