Install / Uninstall User Script on Opera

I decided to write a simple guide on how to install and uninstall user script on Opera after many users keep on asking the same question.

How to install user script on Opera:

Step 1: Create a New Folder on your PC. Rename it. Make sure this folder is safe and did not get deleted by other user on the PC as it will be use to store all user script use in Opera.

Step 2: Open Opera, go to Menu > Settings > Preferences…

Step 3: In Preferences dialog, goto Advanced > Content > JavaScript Options…

Step 4: In JavaScript Option dialog, under User JavaScript folder, click Choose… to select the folder you just created at Step 1.

Step 5: Click OK to close the JavaScript Option dialog.

Step 6: Click OK to close Preference dialog.

Step 7: Download the user script you want from website such as http://userscripts.org

  • If you want to download script from userscripts.org, right-click on the Install button and select Save Linked Content As… and save it to the folder you created at Step 1.
  • Make sure your file you download is end with “.user.js” for example like “filename.user.js” without the .user.js the script will not work. It is recommanded to rename it to “MouseHuntAutoBot.user.js” so that it is easy to remember later on.

Step 8: Done. Continue to read if you want to know how to edit the script.

Step 9: Go to the folder you created in Step 1. Right-click on the script and select Edit.

  • Notepad will be open and it will allow user to edit the script.

Step 10: Edit the script according your need and save it. Reload any page you want to apply the script on your Opera for immediate effect apply.

  • If you want to edit the script in future, just repeat the Step 9 and Step 10.

How to uninstall user script on Opera:

Super duper easy, just go to the folder where you save all the script for Opera (like the one created in Step 1) and delete the script from the folder. Done!

Hope this post can help to save some trouble facing by the new users.

    1. For Opera, you can always go to the folder where you store all the script. Right click the script and open using notepad to edit the script and save it.

      4. if you want to change your random time maybe something like 10 – 60 seconds only then edit
        var hornTimeDelayMin = 10;
        var hornTimeDelayMax = 60;

        or if you want to enable aggressive mode then edit
        var aggressiveMode = true;

        this is just some example you can do with the script.
