Search Results in a New Tab: Opera

The Story (Stuff you can Skip)

When you block select a word or a couple of words and right click on it you have the option to search using the default search engine. This is a common feature in any browser. But when you first install opera, when you search by right clicking on something the search results appear in the same page you are working on. Sometimes this can be really irritating. You might be checking email, reading feeds or browsing some social website even. Clicking back and going back to the original webpage you were browsing on would require loading the webpage again. On slow connections, making you wait a long time too. Surely this is not advantageous. Especially in this era where TABS RULE!.  So here’s how you solve it.

The Point!

Click the Menu button and then click on settings and then preferences.

Click on the Advanced tab and then click on Tabs.

You should have some options as shown below.


Here uncheck the ‘Reuse current tab’ option. That should do it.!

Try searching for something now by right clicking on the selected word(s). It should open in a new tab.

Screenshot using OneNote: Awesome Feature

Things you can skip unless you are bored

If you are a One note user. Well then you’ve been using ‘one good software’ I can tell you. I personally use One note to document my project work. Its just awesome. More about One Note later. Right now I want to get right to the point. One Notes screen capture tool for taking notes.

Ok lets say, you are working on something. You have some output on the screen. You have a graph. Well your software, such as MATLAB can help you save the graphs. But in other cases,

The Point!

One note runs in the background if you don’t know that. Its there in your taskbar. Take a look. So at any point of time. All you need to do is press “windows + s” keys together and you get a crosshair which you can use to drag a box around the object you want to take a screen shot of.

Try it.

It saves you a lot of time.

After you take a screen shot one note automatically saves it to its unfiled notes from where you can cut and paste it to your notebook.

Shown below is a screenshot of this blog I’m writing which automatically got saved to the unfiled notes, of which I took another screen shot using the same one note and then pasted it here. Smile with tongue out



Have fun with this tip.
