Reorder Address Field drop-down menu’s categories according to your preferences.
Do you use the Address Field search more for finding an entry in your History than for Bookmarks? Or do you want Frequently Visited Pages to be listed before Search Suggestions? In the Vivaldi browser, you can tailor the drop-down menu according to your needs.
It can be convenient to find a page you recently visited or a file you downloaded, but it’s also good to get rid of unnecessary data every now and then. In Vivaldi you can choose what to delete and for what time period.
First, select one of the following ways to open the data deletion tool:
Adjust tracker and ad blocking level per site from Vivaldi on Android’s Address Bar.
Let’s say you block all ads and trackers by default but want to make an exception for a specific website that you trust or, maybe, the site behaves strangely, so you want to check whether disabling the content blocker will solve the issue. In that case, while the website you want to change the blocking level for is open in the active tab:
Tap on the Content Blocker button on the left side of the Address Bar.
View your downloaded emails in Vivaldi browser’s profile folder.
When you open an email in Vivaldi Mail it’s downloaded to your computer. You can also enable a setting that downloads all your mail even when you haven’t opened the emails yet (see Tip #59). All downloaded emails are stored as .eml files in your browser profile.
Press Space to scroll down a page and fast forward to the next one.
Whenever you’re browsing through content that’s been divided into pages (search results, online store catalog, etc.) you’ll likely do a lot of scrolling and looking for the “next page” button. In Vivaldi, you can do all of it with a single keyboard key.
By pressing Space, the page will be scrolled down a screen height at a time. Once you reach the end of the page, pressing Space will load the next page.
Create your own social media dashboard with tiled tabs.
Posts feed, direct messages, notifications, trending content – most social media sites offer them all and more. Some have their own (paid) dashboards for simultaneous viewing of these pages, like X’s (formerly Twitter) X Pro (formerly TweetDeck), or Mastodon’s advanced web interface. But you can also create a custom dashboard with Vivaldi’s tab tiling feature of any site you frequent.
Click and drag the edge of the Tab Bar to resize it.
Moving the Tab Bar to the side of the window (see Tip #204 for instructions) is a good way to gain some vertical space for the websites you have open. But your options don’t stop there. On the side of the window, you also have the option to set the width of the Tab Bar.
To resize the Tab Bar:
Hover the mouse cursor over the edge of the Tab Bar.
Click and drag the mouse left or right.
When you’re happy with the size, release the mouse button.
You can make the Tab Bar wider if you wish to read more of the tab titles or make it only wide enough to fit the website’s favicon.
On Android, instead of downloading the file again, open it straight from the download dialog.
Whenever you start downloading a file in Vivaldi on Android that you’ve already downloaded in the past, you’ll be asked whether you want to download the file again or cancel. You’ll probably just want to open the file in that case, right?
Instead of tapping on Cancel and going to the Downloads Panel or roaming around your phone’s file folders to locate the file in question, just tap on the file title (written in blue) on the dialog. It’ll open the file for you.
On help.vivaldi.com we have a large selection of articles teaching you about the countless features of the Vivaldi browser and services. With the help of our amazing volunteer translators, in addition to English, we’re able to offer Help pages in a few different languages.
When viewing an article, look below the title and table of contents to see in which languages the article is available in. Click on the language to switch to the translated version.
Where we have translated more than half of the articles, you can also select the language from the menu in the top right corner of the page and view the whole site in it.
In case we haven’t translated Vivaldi Help into a language you’d like to read the articles in, you can use the browser’s built-in translation tool or a translation Extension of your choice.
Stay focused on your work with the help of the Pomodoro timer.
The Pomodoro technique is a popular time management technique where you divide bigger tasks into 25-minute increments with a 5-minute break in between. Vivaldi Browser has the Pomodoro timer included with the Clock you’ll find on the Status Bar.
To start the timer:
Click on the Clock in the bottom right corner of the browser window.
In the Countdown section, select “Pomodoro”.
Click on Start to start the timer.
If you’ve deleted the Pomodoro timer, create a new timer by setting the countdown time to 25 minutes and giving the new timer a name.
Type / and the name of the block to add it to your Vivaldi.net blog post.
Vivaldi Community Blogs are built on WordPress and use the Gutenberg editor with its block structure. When you’re writing a new blog post and want to add something other than simple text, such as headings, lists, images, videos, etc., you can click the Add Block button and choose one from the selection of blocks or you can insert one by just typing.
To insert a new block:
At the start of a new paragraph, enter the forward slash symbol /.
Then, with the up and down arrow keys, select a recently used block or start typing the name of the block you need.
