How to revert the modern look of speed dial thumbnails?

  • I have upgraded to Opera 27 stable today and the first thing that hit my eyes was the return to old speed dial thumbnails.

    I was used to modern speed dial thumbnails from Opera 26. So, how to set up this? I want the modern speed dial. I cannot find any particular setting in the settings as well as in experiments (flags).

    Thanks & regards!

  • Found it!

    Go to opera:flags#experimental-start-page and select "Enabled" from the dropdown, and restart the Opera. If needed click on "Go back to the new start page" in the bottom-right.

    Solved!

  • Exactly what I was looking for! I was very sad to see the modern speed dial go.

    Thank you very much sir!

  • Just updated to Opera 29 stable and I cannot find again how to revert the modern look of speed dial thumbnails. Anyone?

    Open opera://flags/#experimental-start-page ,deactivate it and restart Opera.

  • Thanks but it changed nothing as regards the speed dial thumbnails. They still are showing the full preview of sites.

  • Open the site, click the heart to the right of the address bar and use the arrow buttons on the sides of the pop up to change the thumbnail image.

  • It doesn't work so simply. At first you have to remove it from speed dial and then add it again, this time with thumbnails you want. I have hundreds of speed dial entries and I cannot imagine to do it one by one. Holy shit!

  • Well, maybe its because I'm using version 30 and not 29 but it works exactly as I described for me.

  • just to make clear. You have the new speed dial with thumbnails showing website-address-text and you want the old speed dial with an image from the website as thumbnail?

  • Right the opposite.

  • Please write and explain more. So you have the old speed dial with thumbnails showing website-Address-text and you want the new speed dial with an image from the website as thumbnail?

  • I have the old speed dial with images from the website as thumbnails and I want to have the new speed dial with thumbnails showing website-address-text.

  • For the new speed dial set opera://flags/#experimental-start-page on activated. But I can't find another way than to open the website, click the top-right-heart and change the thumbnail for speed dial and bookmark in the pop-up. Maybe someone knows a way to change multiple new speed dial thumbnails at once.

    Hopefully.

  • Many Many thanks

    Opera 29 was using a new looking speeddial that I don't like and disabling the experimental start page all has

    a better looking look

    I agree. Disabling it looks a lot better to me. You get a nice contrast for the frame against the white. The all white look is jarring. I hope they go back to what they had with "disabling mode," as most people won't know how to fix it. Also, I'm concerned that we may lose the ability to go into "Disabling mode" in a the next/a future update.

  • Disabled. Thank you so much, it was horrible - change and update the browser? Great, thank you. Optimize things? Fantastic. But seriously, stop %!#!ing around with my speed dial.

    Thank you so much! I really dislike the new "titles". All I want is my screenshots.
