As you may already know, Opera Browser is said to be better than Google Chrome and Firefox in various aspects. Mainly because of its extensive features, speed, and reliability, it stands out from the crowd of other browsers.

The UI of the Opera browser is also different from the others and more smooth. Although, one may find it confusing to find all the essential features at once since they are hidden in plain sight.

One of the many features that Opera offer for its users is Bookmarking. Like the bookmark you used to mark the page where you should resume reading from your book, this one is designed for the web.

  1. I am trying to open bookmark manager in Opera.

    Nothing works.

    I am using a mac laptop.

    Ctrl+Shift+B does absolutely nothing.

    Nothing happens.

    It ignores that instruction. It disappears into the ether, never to be seen again.

    What do I do next?

    1. Hi Don, you need to keypress Option + Cmd + B to invoke the Bookmarks Manager on your Opera for Mac. In case you are looking for the bookmark bar, then Cmd + Shift + B should do the magic.
