(CRAP THE POST DELETED DUE TO THIS $&!&@&@Y&#@#@&#&@ AAAARGGG)

OP note: I already had the post written but went to modify something and, thanks to the habit Ctrl + Backspace, it killed what I was filling out :angry:

 

Original post (trying to recreate it):

Seems that someone on Opera decided it was a good idea to put Ctrl + Backspace as a shortcut for going to Parent Directory. This has been getting to my nerves since I often mechanically delete words by using that combination.

 

I stumbled upon someone with the same issue:

http://superuser.com...era-21-0-1432-0

 

But can’t find a way to actually implement that solution. Where should I put that piece of code?  I have forgotten my password (again) on Stack Exchange and it seems that the recovery is broken. That’s why I’m asking here directly.

 

 

Thanks a million!

Open RUN using Win Key + R

 

Copy paste this if you have Opera Stable 21:

 

 

%APPDATA%\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Preference

 

Open with dialog will appear and will ask you how to open, either use Notepad or if you have Notepad++ or Sublime Text etc then go with it.

 

Simple copy paste below after first curly bracket

 

 

"Keybindings": {
"Basic": {
"ParentDirectory": [ "Ctrl+Shift+Backspace" ]
}
}

If still can't understand, I can make video for you for whole process..

Thanks Zip! Unfortunately Opera is renaming the file to Preferences.bad :/

Edit:

WAIT WAIT WAIT!!!

 

I got it! WOOOHOOOO!

 

Thanks a million. 

 

It's very important to have indented correctly the text. 

 

I put two spaces before  "basic" and 4 spaces before "ParentDirectory". It seems that not doing so will result in Opera flagging the file and creating a new one.

I'm still amazed why in the world would someone modify this shortcut...
