Right click saving bookmark to folder

  • Hello

    I want to hear if there is a fast way of saving a bookmark to a folder by just right clicking on a folder and "Add Page" like in Chrome.

    Help appreciated.

  • If you are on the page you are wanting to bookmark, yes. You can either hit the Heart icon to the right of the address bad, type Ctrl+D or right click the page and click 'Add to bookmarks'. From there you can select which folder you would like to put the bookmark in, change the icon make it a speed dial entry instead. You can also remove bookmarks from that menu.

    If you want to bookmark a page from within the bookmarks manager, no.

  • Thanks, I do know that methods but its a convoluted process for me. It seems there is not a quick way of adding the bookmark to a folder by just right clicking. Any way they will take such a feature request seriously?

  • Other than the way I explained above and dragging an already created bookmark around to the folder you want there are no other ways to do it.

  • You might try the Opera extension Add Bookmark, https://addons.opera.com/en/extensions/details/add-bookmark/?display=en, which lets you place the bookmark right where you want to, when you take it, in the bookmark tree, as part of one action. You click the icon star (for that extension) in your address bar, or when you right click a web page, then you can take the bookmark, and place it in the folder you want as part of that one action. Now I still use the Bookmarks Manager, Chrookmarks for Chrome https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrookmarks-chrome-bookma/kcdheengilgkagjehknnnofigbmlnnf, (as it lets me see the bookmarks setup more easily than the Opera bookmark setup) but I deactivated it, and tested Add Bookmark, and it seems to work fine with the native Opera Bookmark setup.

    Can you disable Opera bookmark system and replcae it with that extension? I mean that all buttons and menus will lead to bookmarks extension instead of default opera bookmarks? Or at least delete heart Opera button in adress bar and replace it with Add bookmark star?

    Can you disable all opera bookmarks folders except my own folder? I dont want to use share or others or whatever stupid folders are in there I just want my own folders.

    Can you delete bookmark from bookmarks with heart button or some easy way or you have to find that bookmark in chaotic manager and delete it there everytime?

    You don't need to disable the Opera bookmark system, and I wouldn't know how to do it, if you could do it. A thought: try the Add Bookmark extension, for a couple of days, and if you don't like it, uninstall it. It will give you an Add Bookmark Star in the address bar, and one also when you right click on a page. You can then just make your bookmark by clicking on that icon -- the star. It will give you the opportunity to place the bookmarks in the folder you want. I think it works more easily than the native setup.

    Now after you do that, if you prefer a different bookmark layout than the native setup, you might try, in addition to Add Bookmark, a bookmarks manager as opposed to the Opera setup, so you could try, among quite a few possibilities, Chrookmarks for Chrome (which I have used for a long time). The Opera system will still be there, but it's no big deal to ignore it. If you try Chrookmarks, you will get a vertical display of your bookmark folders from the Chrookmarks icon on your icon bar. You can choose to let Chrookmarks arrange your folders alphabetically or chronologically. I use Add Bookmarks with Chrookmarks for Chrome (I still make the bookmark through Add Bookmark, but . . . as I mentioned Add Bookmarks will work without Chrookmarks. It's useful, I find, by itself.

    I wouldn't obsess on uninstalling anything. The next update may have the native system working more efficiently. Just leave it there. You might still find use with the Unsorted bookmarks (a reincarnation of Stash), or some of the other folders Opera gives you separate from bookmarks (Travel, Art, Reading list, or make one of your own, separate from your bookmarks).

  • I dont care what opera "offers" me I just dont want to have that folders here so how can I rid of them (dont care how I just dont want to see them anywhere)? If I find good alrtenative then I wiil need stupid opera bookmarks system no more so dont care about uninstalation or future updates... they dont add usefull features anyways so why should I care?

    Can you post here some url where to find that chromemarks? Cant find that extension.
