Opera 9.2 annoyance... any ideas?
« on: April 29, 2007, 11:22:26 PM »
In the last version of Opera, I could right click on a completed transfer and select Open Folder to automatically open the folder where the file was downloaded.  9.2 seems to have taken that away.  Is there an option that I am missing somewhere?

Thanks,
Carl

Actually I noticed that as well. I'm sure there's a context menu item that would allow you to open the folder of any file. According to a forum user: (http://my.opera.com/...ndpost.pl?id=1958636)

Actually ... in 9.10 there was a bug in the Windows version, it ignored the Platform specifier in the menu setup.. We had a few complaints back with the first preview after 9.10 about this item disappearing, when the truth is that it wasn't supposed to have been displayed to begin with (though there is a wishlist topic on having it displayed).

In Windows, it is (currently) only supposed to be shown when you click on the "Transfer completed" notification.
Which explains why it is not there now but not how to enable it, so I keep digging:

http://my.opera.com/...ransfers-right-click
Create a new menu.ini (Tools -> Preferences -> Advanced -> Toolbars -> Duplicate menu setup.
Then go to your Opera profile directory (
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera\profile\ in my case) then into the MENU folder, edit the .ini there. go to line 1400 (in my case) and change it to:
Item, 69697=Open transfer folder

If there's interest I can encloses my standard_menu(1).ini enclosed if you want to use it, but I'm not sure if any other modification have been made to it compared to the stock Opera 9.2 menu.ini or your configuration.

Under Preferences > Advanced > Downloads (CTRL+F12), I've got the file types and download folder set where I want them. That way I've got various files automatically downloading into their pre-defined folders.
