Sometimes, you want to make sure that a tab won’t be closed accidentally. This is where pinned tabs in Opera for computers can help. Simply right-click on a tab and select Pin Tab.

A pinned tab will stay permanently at the left of the tab bar. This can be very useful when you have a lot of tabs opened, and you need to make sure a particular tab stays open. You can, for example, pin the tab with your blog — while you’re writing your new post and simultaneously searching for information on other tabs.

Remember that you can also unpin a tab. Just right-click on the pinned tab and select Unpin Tab.

    Pinned tabs should reload after a “reboot” of Opera.

    • zshello3

      But they already do, at least on stable 24.0.1558.61 on OS X.

        On Windows, they are not saved, you know, You pin some tabs, close the browser and open it again. There is no pinned tab

          I just pinned a tab, closed Opera, reopened it and the pinned tab was there as expected. Windows running Opera 24.0.1558.64

            That does not happen here. I don’t why.

  • Stve

    Pinned tabs disapear if you open a new window & close the old window with the pinned tab & then exit opera by closing the new window.
