How to delete inbuilt seach enginges

  • Hi everyone,

    I'm using the new Opera for a year now, so far I like it very much.
    What I don't like are the inbuilt search engines.

    Google, Amazon and Wikipedia on g, a and w are ok; but Yahoo on y and since the last update DuckDuckGo on d annoys me a lot. I usually have Youtube on y and a Dictionary site on d.

    Do you have know how I can delete or change them to my prefered configuration?

  • I'm running into similar problems. If you follow the instructions found in this thread, you can remove all default search options except for Google, which is apparently hardlocked to 'g'. It will give you some freedom with the other ones though.

    At this point I don't know of a way to add a default search provider though.

  • Perfect! Thank you very much 😃

    That's exactly what I needed!

  • Just don't forget that you will probably need to do it on every update.
