Hi All,

Some time ago we had a discussion about restoring defaults /  
preferences in the browser and whether browsers did a clean sweep of  
all defaults or could group preferences (for example keyboard  
shortcuts etc).

In Opera the best way to restore defaults is to do a clean install of  
Opera in a brand new directory (if you uninstall and reinstall, the  
old profile data is usually retained in the original directory).

If you go to Shortcuts under Preferences > Advanced, you can select  
the "Opera Standard" keyboard shortcuts and mouse gestures too and  
switch these.

Further information can be found at http://www.opera.com/support/kb/view/172/

Cheers, Henny
