Bookmark Help

  • This lack of basic capability makes little sense. An item from the "Opera Developers" (found in one of my searches) last fall talked about spending a year understanding bookmark needs and yet the feature set is the poorest of any major browser

    I suggest getting a bookmarks manager. I use Chrookmarks for Chrome as my bookmarks manager. You can set it to order alphabetically or by date. Then it will do all the work for you. You don't have to go through 100 folders. There's a picture of how it all will look at the link below.

    To download a chrome extension, all you need is the Opera Extension called Download Chrome Extension, or Extension Source Viewer.

    And I'm still using with Chrookmarks 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.

    It works well with Chrookmark. It gives you a "star" in the right of the address bar, and one if you right click on a page. You click on the "star" to make your bookmark.

    This setup doesn't negate Opera's native one, which you can still use if you want, but rather, it operates in addition to it.

  • Is it possible to back up bookmarks? I can't see an option in Opera 29.

  • Is it possible to back up bookmarks?

    Just backup the "bookmarks" file(s) found at Opera's profile folder. Even better, backup the whole profile folder.

  • Just try looking at my recent post 'Bookmark Method'.

  • Is it possible to delete folders in "Other Speed Dials"? And can I rename these folders found in "Other Speed Dials" somehow?

    Lastly, how do I sync Speed Dials between two or more computers, if I want to have the exact same setup of Speed Dials on a couple of computers. Copy & paste is a quite useless option since it will sabotage the order of my speed dials 😞

    Nope.

    Not possible atm.

  • I noticed it is indeed possible to delete folders in "Other Speed Dials", at least in version 30 (opera developer). I guess that'll have to do for now.

    You need to be careful or you will delete the entries on the device.

    On which device? I wanted to remove one set of 'Speed dials' since it was from a work computer which was no longer in use.

  • On which device?

    The one related to the folder, what may not be very easy to know.
