Change start or home page

  • I have searched every where I can think of and cannot find out how to change the start/home page. I want to use my ISP's home page. Is there a way to do this?

  • Startup can be changed in Settings. Actual home page - what new tabs open to - requires installing an extension.

  • Ok. Can you advise how to do this? Its all well and good to say its possible. This is the area to do it, but if you read the original message he said and just like me, have looked everywhere and can not find the location to do this.

    I am using Opera version 28.0.1750.51

  • OMenu > Settings > On Startup > Choose "Open a specific page or set of pages" and set the desired page(s).

  • That is completely different to a home page...

    Let me explain the difference.

    That part is the settings you want to happen when you "open" Opera and what pages are displayed.

    A home page is that of a certain site that you want to set up as a point of quick reference page during your browsing. So you have a 1 button to click at any time where ever you are on that browser tab to get to that page.

    E.g, I have my "On start up" setting to be "continue where I left off". So when I previously closed it I may have been on IMDB and on a different tab on Youtube. So when I close it and reopen it, it opens to IMDB and Youtube. But I like my home page to be Google, because it is a site that I rely on a lot and having a quick button to get there is easiest. So even "after" opening Opera I still want that home page button for the entire duration of my browsing.

    I hope this clarifies. And I hope we can still get some advice on setting up a "Home Page" and button.

    Thanks

  • Opera doesn't have a home page. You need to use an extension if you want to set up one.

  • The best you can do without adding an extension is to bookmark the page you want as your "homepage" and put it on the bookmarks bar.
    That gives you your permanent one-click access to it, but it does mean you have to have the bookmark bar displayed of course, which takes up space.

  • Can one assign a shortcut to a bookmark?
