12.17 installed. Looks like "new" Opera

  • I recently built a new computer and tried to install Opera 12.17, but the version that installed looks like the "new" Opera. I checked the about section and it states that it's version 12.17, but the layout is very "Chrome-y". Is there any way to revert back to the appearance of 12.17?

  • Click the large Opera icon and select "Show menu bar" for a start, that will certainly show you that it's version 12!
    If you try different skins you can soon get rid of the "Chrome look" of the default skin.

  • If you did install 12.17, it should offer to "upgrade" you right away. So you might have both…

  • Oh thank god. I don't know why the menu bar wasn't displayed. If I remember correctly, it used to show up by default. Maybe I'm wrong.

    I think it once did, but that goes WAY back in versions. Maybe 11 or 10 or earlier?
