    Default More speed dial shortcuts in Opera

    A simple change to settings file can add more websites to the Opera Speed dial page, the page of nine shortcuts that appears whenever a new tab is opened.

    First find the folder where Opera keeps its settings file.



    Type about:Opera and make a note of the folder in the Preferences row. It is most likely to be in C:\Documents and Settings\YourUserName\ Application Data\Opera\Opera\profile.

    Click on the File menu and then Close to close Opera then open the file speeddial.ini in the preferences folder. Either use Notepad or a more advanced editor, such as Notepad++.

    Move the cursor down to the forth line and type ‘[Size]’, enter, ‘Rows=5’, enter, ‘Columns=5’ and then enter again.

    Save the settings file and then start Opera again.

    Latest Version opera which is currently in beta (Version 10) have a facility to set this through UI itself (No Custom option, few default values), also have an option to set a background image for the speed dial

    Useful for opera users.
    I found IE8 more better in these easy to use features.... Favourite bar of IE8 and new tab page of IE8 provides much more useful options.....like to open recently closed webpages, accelerators and to open inprivate browsing......
