How to Increase Speed Dial Slots in Opera

Are you an Opera fan like me? Then here’s something cool to try out if you like the Speed dial feature in Opera. If you noticed the number of speed dial boxes you’ll find that there are nine of them, i.e, 3 rows and 3 columns. Here’s a small trick if you want to increase the number of boxes.

1. To add more speed dial boxes, you need to edit a file named speeddial.ini which is located in your Opera profile directory (you can find out the location by typing opera:about in the Opera address bar and note the path to Preferences Folder). By default it is,

C:\Documents and Settings\USER\Application Data\Opera\Opera\Profile.

2. Once you find the location of the file close Opera.

3. Now open speeddial.ini and add the following code:

[Size]
Rows=5
Columns=5

4. Once done, save and exit.

5. Now start Opera for changes to take effect. You should be able to see 20 slots now.

  • Do you seriously consider yourself an Opera fan? When is the last time that you checked bizztech.com in Opera…seriously? I made an attempt to contact you all to let you know that it looks horrid in Opera due to poor coding, but it was obviously ignored and nothing was changed.

    I won’t even get into the fact that the increased Speed Dial trick is very old (Opera Watch), but you should really test this browser on your own site before posting tips for it if you really want to sell people on it.

    How many people that read your site are going to come here and think….wow, this is a great browser and this is a great trick from bizztech.com…when the site renders so horribly due to poor coding?

    (period) Please do better than this.

  • Hi,

    Thanks for notifying about it. But the thing that shocks me is that the website workss perfectly in my Opera version. I blog and manage my site in Opera itself. I can show you a screenshot. I have also checked Opera on other pcs. I’m using Opera 9.64. Did you try deleting the browser cache and cookies? I had experienced this problem once but it had dissapeared later. I’ll try my best to fix the problem. I really don’t know what’s the issue as my browser is working perfectly.

    Anyways here’s the shot- http://i39.tinypic.com/21b6per.png

    Thanks for your comment

    Regards

    I have no problems while viewing in Opera. Just make sure you double check yourself before getting on someone’s case next time. Btw, I don’t care how old the trick is, it helped me out a lot. Thanks!
