Missing Appearances, Preferences, etc. from Menu.

  • I am missing the Appearances setting, Preferences, etc.
    A lot of the customizable options are found there, and evidently they should be accessed through: Settings > Appearance/Preferences, but no such is found in the menu.
    Does anyone know how to get there, or make them appear in the Menu? Maybe it is the entire menu that should be changed, but I dont know how to do this or if it is even possible..
    Please help!!! Love Opera, but am really missing some features, because of the lack of options...

  • There not such things in "new" Opera, which similar to Chrome, Yandex.

    Every new features are similar to every Chromium-based browsers, such as 'new' print preview or bookmark editor.

    An unique feature in Opera, such as, Turbo, now have competitors: Janus for Firefox, Chrome Data Compression proxy for any browsers support WebP images.

    If you can not browse sites with old Opera (v.12.x and before version 12.x), and you need features, then there are few available options:

    1. Firefox with extensions, is more likely 'old Opera' than Opera itself.

    Some people use Opera for only its Turbo, but Firefox now has 'Janus', that save your traffic data.
    You now can not control your Opera like Firefox, even with basic functions like saving webpages, images...

    1. Waiting for other Opera-like browsers (I meant, 'old Opera'-like, full-featured, highly configurable browsers) be mature:

    Otter-browser interesting project aims to be Opera-12-alike.

    Fifth-browser aims to be Opera-9-alike.

  • PS:
    If Chromium is MS Notepad
    New Opera is very good as Notepad with some syntax highlight. Those two are useless.

  • Otter browser, which uses Qt toolkit, can use any engine supported by Qt.

    The developers are testing Blink engine. :)

  • I'm new to Opera and I have the same problem as Alexander -- no appearances, preferences, etc. on the menu. I want to set a home page button and add notes, but some of the drop-down menu items that are supposed to be there are not there. Cyxovi's replies don't address this issue. It's not a question of wanting to use a different browser, it's of wanting to access all the features that this one already supposedly has.

    I hope someone can provide the answer.

    Strange! If that what you want - settings, preferences... then what the motive let you use this 'new Opera' (Yes, as you state you are NEW to Opera). WHEN this 'new Opera' does not have these settings, preferences as you want, and may be NEVER has.

    Why! Why! Why!????

    My reply precisely address this issue, this browser does NOT have these features in the first place. So the OP want features, change browser.

    Also:
    Beside of Fifth, Otter, there are another feature-rich browser Vivaldi, by former Opera's CEO Jon von Tetzchner and his team. Vivaldi based on Chromium, but unlike this Opera, Vivaldi - at technology preview stage - has many features that 'defined Opera' (not 'define').

    If you - jinonca - don't like to change browser, fine, stick with this browser, useless Opera, NO one can answer your question. Because, simple, Opera does not has appearances, Preferences....

  • May be all of you, old Opera fans have hear Vivaldi, but for ones don't known.

    Here is the solutions for the OP, who want Chromium/Blink browser, with features:

    Download Vivaldi.

  • Ahh if the browser doesn't support it then why does this website state that it does then champs

    I am the NECRO king BABY :-P
