Bookmark location for Opera26

  • Hi, i needed to download the latest version of Opera.
    I had my favorites in specific folders and created a backup then stored them in another folder on my computer.
    I then downloaded Opera26. When I went to look for my bookmarks, there are no folders visible.
    How and where to I transfer by backed up bookmarks (with folders) so they appear in the new Opera 26?
    Thank you

  • Have a look on the 'About Opera' page via the menu. Under the heading 'Paths' will tell you the current location for your 'Install', 'Profile' and 'Cache' folders. Copy your 'Bookmarks...' files to the 'Profile' folder. NB, You may have to enable 'Show hidden files and folders' in Windows to see that location.

  • Thanx - that helped....and after following the path, it did make sense....
    ALso, I noticed that when I change a .BAK file to become my primary Bookmark folder, it switches to a SalesMagnet type of file. SalesMAgnet is a software program developed by InstalleRex-WebPic and there are websites suggesting to remove this file.....
    DO I not need this to retain my bookmarks?

    Why and how are you changing it? You should not mess with those files unless the original ones get corrupted.

  • I resave the bookmarks file under a different name. I then re-name the .BAK file by removing the extension. The file type switches from BAK to SalesMagnet. This process actually works....it shows previous bookmarks...
    Is there another way I should be doing this?
