Add More Panels to Opera 9.6 Speed Dial

Opera users no longer have to place all their favorite websites on the browser's tool bar. The Opera 9.6 Speed Dial allows Internet surfers to display multiple website thumbnails on a page that appears whenever they open a new tab. Opera 10.0 users can add additional Speed Dial panels via a customization menu. Opera 9.6 does not have this functionality. To add more Speed Dial panels to Opera 9.6, update its Speed Dial configuration file.

This article will help you to add more panels to Opera 9.6 speed dial.
  1. Open Opera. Click "Help" and select "About Opera." A page will open that displays Opera settings information.
