How To Use Opera GX Mods

I saw mention of Opera GX Mods, I think it was on Reddit, but it didn’t explain what they were. A little bit of research and I found out they were basically theme packs for OperaGX. They include animated background wallpaper, music, and browser sounds (like a sound when you click on the new tab button).

To get to these Mods, go to settings by clicking Alt+P or Ctrl+F12 or Opera menu, Settings. Scroll down in the GX section and click on the “Manage Mods” button.


There are five default mods but you have to click on the Install button to set them up first.


Then you have options to Modify the Mod. Uncheck what you don’t want like Browser sounds, Background music, and so on. You can also Enable/Disable or Remove. Options may vary from Mod to Mod.


If you don’t like the preinstalled Mods, click on the “Store” button to go to their website to download and install more Mods. Scan through the site and click on a Mod that you like.


It takes you to another screen with more information on that Mod. Click on the “Install” button. It installs and sets up automatically.


If you are the more adventurous type, try creating your own. Click on the “Create” button. It takes you to Opera GX Gaming Mods At Github for more information and resources about making your own Mods.

I installed this one called Zombie Apocalypse. The Zombies don’t walk but they sway like they are walking. The man in front raises and lowers his gun, but doesn’t actually shoot. There are Gray clouds going across the top and a mist across the bottom.

That’s basically Mods in a nutshell.

  1. I have not found a complete guide to this anywhere. Even this guide is unsatisfactory.
    I have found the page within Opera GX where you can download a MOD.
    But after installing it, what now?
    Nothing happens. I am still on the download page and it reports that the MOD is installed by way of providing a button to úninstall’it.
    But thats it.
    Nothing has changed to the appearance of Opera GX. And I can not find the mod anywhere.
    In fact NONE of the tutorials I have come across actually show you step by freakn step on how to do this.
    There is so much presumption online these days that EVERYONE MUST know this stuff by now. Well, no. That is not the case.’
    So, HOW do I find the MOD to be able to enable it as so many have suggested. WHERE do I enable it?
    Not one site has shown a picture or video of WHERE you enable it. :-/

      Sometimes they set and run automatically but sometimes they don’t. Go to Settings > and scroll down the page till you see Manage Mods. You will see all your installed Mods. Go down through all the Mods listed and disable them. Then pick one and Enable it. When you open the Speed Dial page your Mod should be active.
