Opera Help


Opera comes with a small selection of bookmarks. You can add to and organize your bookmarks as you wish.


Accessing bookmarks

Bookmarks can be accessed from the Bookmarks panel, directly from the Bookmarks menu, or by going to Bookmarks > Manage Bookmarks.

Tip: Add nicknames for your most frequently used bookmarks. For example, make "tv" the nickname of your personalized TV guide. To access the guide, simply type "tv" into the address field and hit Enter.

Press Alt+Enter to:

Bookmarks bar

Put your favorite bookmarks/bookmarklets, bookmark folders, and web searches on the bookmarks bar so you can use them quickly and at any time. Note: This replaces the personal bar, which existed in versions of Opera previous to Opera 11.

This toolbar is disabled by default.

Turn the bookmarks bar on or off

To turn the bookmarks bar on or off, go to Toolbars and select or deselect it from the list.

Use the bookmarks bar

Drag bookmarks and folders from the bookmarks panel, links, page tabs, and bookmarklets directly to the bookmarks bar. Alternatively, you can right-click the bookmark in the panel, select "Properties", and check the "Show on Bookmarks Bar" option.

To add a search to the bar, select it from the toolbar's right-click menu.
