Few days back, Opera 40 released with free built-in VPN, RSS and Chromecast support, along with it, Opera software has shipped and enabled speed dial suggestions feature. The Opera desktop team wants you to offer suggestions to add most popular sites to speed dials.
These suggestions will appear at the bottom of the start page, you can right click on one and select ‘Add to speed dial’. If you’re annoyed about these and don’t want to see SD suggestions, you can disable them easily, here is how.
Disabling Speed Dial suggestions in Opera 40
1. Visit Opera Settings, click on Privacy & Security, scroll down to the bottom of the page and check’ Show Advanced Settings‘
2. Open the start page, and click on cog wheel, which opens Customize Start Page popup
3. Uncheck ‘Show Suggestions‘ under Speed Dial.
Note: SD suggestions won’t appear right away after installing Opera, they’ll be generated eventually based on your browsing history.
