Who said our browsers had to be uniform? Opera affirms its personality and stands out from its competitors by offering a different organization of its visuals. The big plus: the ability to install your own images!

On Opera, unlike Google Chrome for example, there is a distinction between the visual background of the toolbars and that of the wallpaper: we will change one then the other. Also, the browser offers only two themes: light or dark. On the other hand, these themes apply in each of the menus, not only in the toolbars. In addition to this, the browser offers a wide choice of wallpapers and even offers to install personal images!

In this tutorial dedicated to explaining how to properly configure Opera, we show you how to download and install a new theme on it!

Enable dark theme on Opera

To choose to go from dark to light and vice versa, nothing could be simpler:
  1. Open the menu of the Easy setup, at the top right of your browser. In the panel that appears, select Clear ou Dark.



That's all ! You can see that the color has changed everywhere, not just in the toolbars.

Install a wallpaper on Opera

  4. The Opera add-ons tab opens. At the top of the window, check that you are in the game Wallpapers.

  5. Scroll to examine the different visuals or click on one of the five categories for a more targeted search.

  6. As you can see, Opera also offers live wallpapers.

  7. Once you have made your choice, click on the image then, in the page that has just loaded, click on Add to Opera.

Notes : You can use the bar Search add-ons to find a theme but remember to do your search in English, because the names of the themes are not translated!
