Well, in my previous thread, it was suggested that I try another browser to see if it solved my problem (that's not what this thread is about). I installed Opera, and it works just fine, but I have to go find it in \usr\... to use it. How do I add it the Applications / Internet ?

Right click on the word "Application", click on "Edit menu", and you will have a chance to add a new item

if you right-click on the menu headings you can "Edit Menus"...the rest should be self-explanatory.

Right click the main menu and choose edit.
You can change, delete or add menu items.
E.g.gCreate a new entry for opera (I think the command is just 'opera') in the internet group

Cheers

edit: as usual I came in second ;)

System->Preferences->Main Menu
There, create a custom launcher.

ok, That worked, but Opera was in the list for Internet, just not displayed when i navigated there. I added it, and it works so now I know how to do it. Thanks everyone
