The Speed Dial tab is the equivalent of the New Opera tab page in Google Chrome. You can add shortcuts to all your favorite websites, but the speed dial numbers don’t include page thumbnails. Instead, they have logos and website titles. You can customize the speed dial page using browser options and extensions.
The weather forecast widget is now available by default to all users. Some users may not like the new weather widget. They may not be interested in the new widget and may wish to disable or remove the weather forecast widget from the Opera speed dial page.
Enable Or Disable Weather Forecast on Speed Dial page
- Start the Opera web browser, click on the Opera Menu button and then on the Preferences option. You can also start the settings page directly by pressing Alt+P keys simultaneously.
- Now scroll down the settings page and click on the “Advanced” link. This will bring up the advanced settings options.
- Scroll down again and you will see the “Home” section. Now look for the “Show weather widget” option.
Shift the Shift key to OFF to remove the weather forecast widget from the speed dial page. This will immediately remove the widget from the speed dial page.
Enable or Disable Weather Forecast using Flags
