Help topics

  • Kudos to the developers who coded the new help.

    I tried searching for a term that is admittedly very technical and altogether obscure--"cache"--conceivably I'm the only user who would be interested in this word. So the search results aren't so surprising:

    "No results matches on search for “cache”. Please try refining your keywords.
    Did you mean: cache"

    Yeah, Opera, I meant cache. I wanted to flush the browser cache because the three copies of Chrome that TaskManager shows are now running have choked my laptop down to a crawl. But the settings interface has changed so much and I couldn't find where to flush the cache.

  • Can you tell me where I can find the new help? All the links I can find relate to defunct versions and have no version to the version I have (27). I want to find the history settings but I have no idea where they are.

    Press F1 or go to OMenu > Help.

    Which history settings?

    Open Settings > Privacy & Security > Clear browsing data. You can open that page with a shortcut too: Ctrl+Shift+Del.

    because the three copies of Chrome that TaskManager shows are now running have choked my laptop down to a crawl.

    How is flushing the cache in Opera going to effect Chrome? How is flushing the cache going to speed up your system? All that does is makes the browser download new copies of any data that was previously stored in the cache, which is on your hard drive. It will have zero effect on the usage of the RAM and CPU.

  • Maybe he's thinking about 'memory cache' in Olde Opera...

  • Could be. He didn't mention what version he was using.
