Use multiple toolbar setups

Besides customizing toolbars, you can also have more than one toolbar setup, for example, if you want a specific set of toolbars to use for a particular task, but you also want to keep the existing toolbar setup for general browsing. If you want to keep the existing setup around and create a new, additional one, follow these steps:

  1. Select the toolbar setup you want to use as a template and click "Duplicate".
  2. Highlight the newly-created toolbar setup, select "Rename", and name it so you can easily identify it.
  3. Select your new toolbar setup in the list and click "OK" to exit the preferences.
  4. You are now using the new toolbar setup. Right-click any toolbar and select "Customize" to go to the "Appearance" dialog, where you can drag and drop buttons, search fields and other toolbar elements.
  5. To return to the previous toolbar setup, select Opera > Preferences > Advanced > Toolbars and select the setup from the list.
