How to clear specific files in Opera
Sometimes you want to keep most of your browsing data, and only remove a few items or clear history. Maybe you forgot to open a private window, or perhaps you’ve stopped using a particular extension. There’s no reason to throw the baby out with the bathwater, as they say. To remove individual files, cookies, google history items or other data, follow the instructions in the corresponding context below.
