Opera Browser Shortcut Keys – Keyboard Shortcut


Want create site? Find Free WordPress Themes and plugins.

You can browse a lot faster using the keyboard, and this page gives you an overview of the available keyboard shortcuts. Some operations have multiple shortcuts; use those you find most convenient.

Notice that the keyboard shortcuts have changed considerably since Opera 9.2. The old shortcuts are still available if you choose “Opera 9.2 Compatible” in Preferences > Advanced > Shortcuts. A compromise approach that enables some of the more popular single-key shortcuts is to check the box marked “Enable single-key shortcuts”.

Note: Selecting the alternate keyboard setup “Opera Standard for UNIX” in the preferences will override some Opera shortcuts with classic UNIX shortcuts.

These keyboard shortcuts are applicable in Google Chrome browser on any platform like WindowsMACLinux, Chromebooks our any other desktop operating system in which you are using Opera.
