When you open a new tab in the Opera web browser, you are shown a Speed Dial interface instead of a blank tab. The Speed Dial is a galley of web site thumbnails, clicking on which you will quickly open the selected site. But this is very annoying for some people. If you do not like the Speed Dial to be opened for a new tab in the Opera web browser, then you can disable it. Here is how you can disable the Opera web browser :
- Open Opera web browser and type opera:config in the location bar and press Enter. This would open the Preferences Editor as shown.
- In the Preferences Editor, scroll down and under the category User Prefs, you will find a value Speed Dial State.
- Change the value of the Speed Dial State from 1 to 3. Changing this value to 3 would disable the Speed Dial. Click on the Save button shown at the bottom of the User Prefs category in the Preferences Editor in order to save the settings.
- Now you can close the Preferences Editor. From now on when you will open a new tab in the Opera web browser, you will see a blank tab instead of the Speed Dial.
