opera visual gesturesThe latest feature in Opera browser is the Mouse Gestures which lets you perform actions with small mouse movements. However, you might wish to turn it off since some users find it quite annoying. In fact, such a feature is turned on, by default. To “awake”  and completely activate it, it is sufficient to hold up the right mouse button for a couple of seconds to see the mouse gestures user interface. Let’s see how to turn it off and get rid of it.

  1. Open your Opera browser.
  2. Paste the following piece of code in the address bar: opera:config#UserPrefs|ShowGestureUI
  3. Click Enter.
  4. The Gesture User Interface will appear on your browser.
  5. Untick the Show Gesture UI checkbox button to turn off the feature.
  6. Go to the end of the page and click the Save button.
  7. Now restart Opera for the change to take effect.

    Mouse gestures are awesome. The new part of it is the “visual” part – it pops up and tells you what the gestures do if you hold down the right mouse button long enough. A lot easier to turn off than you make out too!

    The other features I love are the little trashcan on the tab bar (listing all tabs you’ve closed), and the fact that it fills out ALL forms again for you if you hit back and/or forward – so you don’t lose that really long forum post you just typed! Single-click logon to sites is very handy too, as is the built-in mail, RSS and chat clients.

    Opera is the fastest, most secure, most feature-rich browser on the planet. Why settle for less?
