Hello everyone. I am back with some good news. To go back to version 58 permanently. Please follow these steps :
Go to your AppData/Local and AppData/Roaming - Copy Opera Software folders from there to a seperate location. For example : Make a new Folder OperaLocal, then copy "Opera Software" from C:\Users[YourUserName]\AppData\Local\Opera Software.
---DO the same step for Roaming as well. This folder is where your user settings etc are.
Uninstall Opera > It will have a box if you want to delete your User Data also, don't check that box. The above step is just insurance you don't lose your settings etc. But your user data will remain intact.
NOTE: This step 2 is only for those who wish to Uninstall and Re-install. If you look in C:\Program Files\Opera , most of you can already see version 58 is already there. Opera keeps the last good version just in case to allow you to revert. In this case, you only delete version 60 folder and that is it. Proceed to Firewall and Task Scheduler steps. If you do not have version 58, then you must uninstall and proceed to below steps.
- After Uninstall Opera, go to
and download your beloved old version 58. After download, Install it.
Opera will automatically start after install, Close it very quickly!
Go to your Windows Task Scheduler. Hit Windows Key, type Task Scheduler. Once it starts, go in Task Scheduler Library > and look for > Opera scheduled Autoupdate. Right Click this and Disable it.
Now type Windows Key and type Windows Firewall with Advanced Security
Here you will make 2 Rules to Fully block Opera from AutoUpdate.
Click Inbound > New Rule > Program > browse for program.
You need to go into C:\Program Files\Opera\58.0.3135.127\ and look for this file :
Now block this file in both Inbound and Outbound (new rule > program) same steps. You will select Block Connection and for ALL Domain. It's a very simple process but I am here to help if you have any problem so do not worry.
After this, Opera will not able to update itself without your permission!
Now you may enjoy!
Benefits of this :
- Easy on your eyes,
- Beautiful dark side bar (even with light theme)
- Speed Dial now looks properly size and its font are now perfect!
- No more ugly too much white space and everything looks like it is designed by a human being for another human being!
Ok that is it! And remember, you can use extention like Ublock Origin and Decentraleyes.
You can also use a good host file. No more nasty things coming in your PC.
Best security is you, not what someone else force on you. So best of lucky my friends and have yourself the most wonderful day, enjoy the Upgrade to version 58!
