How to open bookmarks file

  • Is there any way to open bookmarks file? Recently i have deleted opera and all of it files. I have recovered file named bookmarks and put into new opera folder, but it doesn't work. Is there any way to open this file and just copy the bookmarks manually?

  • You need to go to the 'About Opera' menu item in Opera and find out where the 'Profile' folder is located and copy that 'bookmark' file you have to that location.

  • I have done that, but it does't work. Opera switches my file with a new one.

  • What is the full file name of that bookmark file you have ?.

    What version of Opera are you using or trying to use ?.

  • It's Bookmarks.002, I have changed it to bookmarks, still doesn't work.

  • It's Bookmarks.002, I have changed it to bookmarks, still doesn't work.

    This is not a Opera's bookmarks file.

  • It's possibly the Bookmarks file is corrupt - where did you "recover" it from?
    If renaming the file to Bookmarks and placing it in the relevent folder doesn't work (e.g. C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Opera Software\Opera Stable), then you could be out of luck.

  • C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\ may not be correect. ;)

    In Explorer you can see the Opera profile folder by entering %APPDATA%\Opera Software\Opera Stable in address bar

  • Opera 12 and earlier the filename was "bookmarks.adr" Latest versions filename is "bookmarks" without an extension. You still haven't mentioned which version of opera you have. Opera 26 can import bookmarks from opera 12. Don't think it would work just copying the file into your profile location of opera and renaming it bookmarks. You said, *Recently i have deleted opera and all of it files." Did you make a copy of the bookmark file?
