Widgets are applications based on browser technology. There are widgets for just about any purpose: weather forecasts, games, clocks, dictionaries, media players, and much more.
Opera makes it possible to run widgets without ever opening the browser, just like any other application. Opera must be installed, because a running widget depends on a widget engine.
Exporting your widgets
In previous versions of Opera, widgets were accessible from a special "Widgets" menu, which in this new version of Opera no longer exists. If you have upgraded Opera, if you were previously using widgets, and if you wish to retain your widget settings, you need to export your widgets before you can continue using them. To do so, choosefrom the menu.
Installing and running widgets
To find and install widgets, go to widgets.opera.com, where a large number of widgets is available. To install a widget, choose one, and click on the "Launch" button. The Widget Installation wizard opens, and guides you through the installation process. By default, the wizard creates entries under "Programs" in the Start Menu, on the desktop, and on the Quick Launch bar, together with other applications.
Removing a widget from the system is the same as removing any other application.
You can drag and place widgets anywhere you want on your screen. The widget context menu makes possible some additional configuration:
|View||Placement and zoom|
|Preferences||Password manager and remote debugger|
|Download More Widgets||Opens widgets.opera.com in the system's default browser|
