  • Go to MENU
  • Click on UPDATE AND RECOVERY
  • It is just under ABOUT OPERA
  • It will open in a new tab.
  • Or in the Opera browser space, just opera://update and hit enter to reach to Update & Recovery.
  • UPDATE & RECOVERY has two segment
  • One is UPDATE which will provide latest installed update version.
  • Then, it wills say Opera is up to date if the latest version is installed. Then last checked time of update will be there.
  • Then CHECK FOR UPDATE button to check update manually.
  • Another segment is RECOVERY.
  • If after update browser is not running as it should be, from here you can by clicking on the RECOVER button resset browser to a default state where it works nicely.
  • You have the option to fully refresh reinstall of Opera browser.
  • Earlier in order to check for update, one has to go to MENU and then ABOUT OPERA and in the VERSION INFORMATION version, update stream and system information will be there.

Personally, I found Update & Recovery add is a good one. When there is difficulties of updating or VPN not working or so then there is the chance of recover.

As wrote above one can recover by preserving all of these data or can go for a fresh install.
The news section in speed dial provides the simple option and from now on I find it from lesser sources. News segment in Menu can provide for the more personalised source of news.
