  1. First, Does Opera get my bookmark in any way?
    Second, How can I save my bookmarks in a text file?
    Third, what other Opera files should I backup to preserve my browser setup?
    Opera needs to have a backup feature for their browser and not leave it up to the user to have to search for this information.
    There is to much information on the page, get to the point of how to do the task. We do not need the history of browsers when all we want is to Import/Export/Backup the browser and its book marks. Links to other information can be added for user convenience.

  2. Did not help, on Opera v42 for Mac, there is no “Settings”. There is a “Preferences” but only an Import Bookmarks choice, no choice for exporting or backing up.
