Save data for online forms

Some sites require you to fill in personal information such as your name and address. Rather than typing the same information over and over, you can enter it once here.

After entering your personal information in the preferences, you can quickly fill in forms by selecting from a drop-down once you start typing into the field, or by right-clicking the field.

Right-clicking any input field, including chat sessions and email messages, will produce a sub-menu called "Insert personal", where you can select information that you have stored in the preferences.

If Opera recognizes a form field as one you have entered information for in the Forms preferences, you can also use the password manager to fill in the field. Click the password manager icon on the address bar or press Ctrl+Enter.

Tip: Use the "Other" fields for alternate addresses or other snippets of personal information you find yourself repeatedly typing into forms.
