This page explains how to edit the mouse and keyboard shortcut setups in Opera.
If you wish to change the default mouse or keyboard setups:
- Select the configuration you wish to change, and click "Edit".
- Find the operation you wish to edit by typing in the "Quick find" field or clicking the list.
- Click "Edit" and enter a sequence of keys or mouse movements to associate with the event.
Note that if you do not want to use mouse gestures, you can disable them completely to avoid accidentally triggering events. If you are left-handed, you may choose to enable corresponding back and forward gestures.
The "Middle click options" dialog lets you choose what Opera should do when you click the middle button or scroll wheel on your mouse. The default action is to open the clicked link in a background tab.
Opera 9.5 significantly altered the "Opera standard" shortcut setup, eliminating most of the single-key shortcuts. Select "Opera 9.2 compatible" to recover the keyboard shortcut setup used in Opera 9.2. A compromise approach that enables some of the more popular single-key shortcuts is to check the box marked "Enable single-key shortcuts".
Select the "Opera Standard for UNIX" keyboard setup to enable common UNIX keyboard shortcuts, such as Ctrl+A for "Go to start of line" in place of "Select all".
