  • Hi , I just installed Opera, I would like to use it instead of Firefox, because it gave me blue screens all the time... anyway I really liked, and used a lot, the bookmark bar in Firefox,I think in Opera it is called the quick access bar. But I can't seem to find where to enable,:( there is no button or checkbox in settings , nor i can find it in help. I have win 7 64, and opera 17 or 18 (i tried both ,but i didn't find a trace of the quick access bar).
    Please help me to enable the q.access bar ,i would really like to use it in opera...Thanks!:)

    Oh silly me... i found opera:flags, and enabled it :D!

  • Sorry I posted an invalid link.

  • Is there an easy way to import into the QAB either all of the entries in the speeddial page or all of the bookmarks from my old Presto browser (Opera 12.16)?

    Menu, More Tools, Bookmark Importer.

    Once you have imported bookmarks to the QAB, you can right-click a folder and add them as a speed dial group.

    Best to do any organising and tidying up in 12.16 first, but you can also use D&D on the QAB, and edit bookmark and folder names to make them shorter (to fit more on the QAB).

    Ah. I see. I do not think the alternative presented itself the first time I imported, promting me to add them as speeddials. Now I can delete all of the darn speeddials again.

    Thank you!

  • I just installed the latest developer release (19.0.1326.0)--the bookmark importer is greyed out. Is that issue just with me or is it just disabled in this version?

  • That install of Opera has not found your old (Presto) profile, if it doesn't know where your profile is then it won't offer to import your bookmarks.

    Hi Wile-e-wonka, you can try one of thesolutions.

  • Is it possible to add bookmarks to a Quick Access Bar folder?
    Michael

  • Right-click on QAB to add a folder
    Open the folder, Add page

  • I should have figured that out myself, I guess when I clicked on +Add Page I got confused by the bar already being filled in. It doesn't get better as you get older.
    Thanks
    Michael
