Setting Opera as the default browser on a Windows Mobile

Sep 29, 2009 • Mobile • Less than a minute read

I own an HTC Touch HD as was getting a bit annoyed at Internet Explorer being the default browser when selecting links from emails. However, Opera Mobile has a ‘hidden’ configuration screen and can be used to set it as the default :

  1. Run Opera

  2. Enter ‘opera:config’ in the address bar

  3. Find the ‘Install’ section

  4. Select ‘Browser First Time Launch’ checkbox

  5. Press ‘Save’

  6. Soft reset
