Many thanks for your guidance.
I have used the technique successfully
Do more on the web, with a fast and secure browser!
Download Opera browser with:
I am Windows 10 (64 bit) Build 1902.
With program updates I generally like to download and save the update file to another device e.g USB.
I do this so that if my Laptop crashes I can reinstall programs from my backup device rather than individually going to all the websites and having to download.
I always like to have the latest version.
Until recently I mainly used filehippo.com as a source for availability of updates.
Lately filehippo seems to have gone awry in many cases. e.g it will quote a new update version e.g xxxx.193 available but when one clicks on that header to download the update file it shows an older (and most likely already installed ) version e.g xxxx.174
I have Opera v 60.0.3255..170 installed but I had to do that by direct update from the Opera Site which directly only installs it on my hard drive.
Is there a way to download and save the updated version to another device for backup purposes.?
When I log on to Opera , the opening page shows several "squares" . These are my three selected News Sites plus the one for Opera Forum.
They show horizontally across the page.
I have quite an attractive Wallpaper and the "square' on the right obscures a core part of the wallpaper.
Can I reposition or rearrange the Squares (like" arrange Icons" on MS Windows)?
I have tried drag and drop but this does not even allow me to rearrange the sequence on the horizontal line.
Sorry i cannot think of correct terminology other than Squares.
If I want to add one i says "Do you want to add another site?"
a) Many programmes when one is installing an update provide an option (as part of the upgrade process or 1st installation process if installing the programme for the first time) "do you want to Create a Desktop short cut?"
b) Secondly there is sometimes a prompt " e.g "an existing version is installed - Upgrade Yes /No?"
At present one has to update Desktop Short cut manually via Launcher.exe or Select Opera.exe and then Create a Short cut.
HI leocg I did have Show Sidebar enabled.
I want to widen the Sidebar. I checked under Opera Extensions re Sidebar which has some displays one of which is what I used to have.
Unfortunately that " Display in Extensions " is just that -an image-.
It does not tell one how to enable such display.
IO have tried dragging the right edge of the Sidebar to make it wider but nothing happens.
i am on Windows 10 64 bit Build 1809 I have today updated Opera to 60.0.3235 .59 from the 60.0.3235.27 version.
The problem appeared recently in 60,0.3235.27 version.
Previously on my Start page the Navigation bar (on screen's left side) which included Bookmarks, displayed as well as my Speed Dials (I only had 3)
Now only the Speed Dials display and that screen occupies almost the full page.
I can access my Bookmarks by "playing around": but have been unable to reduce the screen size showing Speed Dials
How can I get back to my original (has been so for many years) of showing clearly the Navigation Bar plus my Speed Dials on the same start page?.
I am on Opera 54.0..2952.71 version.
When one updates Opera it does not automatically offer an option to create a Desktop Shortcut.
One has to use Explorer and manually create one.
With this latest version I have had to do this several times as the Shortcut keeps disappearing from my Desktop and I have to manually recreate it only a day or so later to find the Shortcut has once again disappeared.. Any ideas as to fixing this?
It would be best if during programme update the option to create a Desktop Option was shown,
