Searching Using Google Problem

  • When I do a search it always opens in Google.es (Spain). Is there a way to change this to Google.com for the default search page in O28??

  • Find your "Opera local state" file and change the language codes here:

    "location": {
      "country": "br",
      "country_from_server": "BR",
    

    Right, Steve?

  • What is the name of that file, is it actually "Opera local state" or somethig different, and where is it located?

    Thanks

  • It's just called "Local State" (no extension) and should be in your {Opera Folder}\Profile\Data folder.
    🙂

  • And I would use "US" as the country code for USA, and what about the time stamp at the end of that. Also I changed the ES to US, closed Opera down and when I opened it up again, it still went to google.es, and the local state file had reverted to the ES configuration.

    ?????

  • I found the Local State file and it is two pages of code which mean nothing to me. How do I apply it to my problem? Al my Excel files feature the Opera logo 0 but when I open the file Opera tells me to save it. It already is saved. It is rendered useless. I have Opera on my other computer (XP OS) and have no similar problem.

    I guess you shall close the browser first.😛

    You shall find those lines there.
    Try opening it with something that has a search tool first: find the line and remember where it is.
    You can edit those right there, of course, and then copypaste the whole thing back, but I'd be cautious if some encoding matters or like that.
    (You could copy the file somewhere first - in case.)

  • joshi, yes, closing Opera down first, and then saving the local state file, then reopening O28 did the trick, thanks
