@leocg can you give me more specific instructions for option 2? I'm comfortable doing my own troubleshooting, but I do get anxious without explicit instructions... I'd much rather #2 than complete reinstall.

RE: Impossible to change default search query google.com.mxOpera for Windows
Impossible to change default search query google.com.mxOpera for Windows
I purchased this machine not long ago from the US, but installed opera while on vacation in Mexico. Now the default google search query is google.com.mx, which I do not prefer. I realize I can add another search engine, but you can't use an added search engine as a default. As I understand it, there is no way to change the default query setting, so I'm wondering if I have to do a complete reinstall of opera (on a vpn this time because I'm in Ecuador) in order to have google.com as the default search query?? Also, I haven't been through the uninstall with Opera, so I'm curious the process to retain the user settings/files, etc. so I don't have to go through customizing all over again... or if perhaps Opera uninstall gives me the opportunity to keep those files?
While I'm fairly tech savvy, having been a BA many years, too much moving and copying of system files and the like has always made me a tad nervous. Ideally it'll help if any instructions can be explained step by step with few buzzwords or acronyms. Any help will be MUCH appreciated! (:
P.S. Is this something I overlooked at some point during setup perhaps and I had the choice initially (determined by the user at setup or initializing the app)?
