How to Disable the Opera Turbo

by Frank Dioso

The Opera browser is a popular free Web browser that allows you to surf the Internet, chat online, download files and send and receive email messages. One of the features is Opera Turbo; when turned on, this feature automatically increases your bandwidth when a slow Internet connection is detected. Opera Turbo is useful when your Internet connection is slow; however, if your Internet connection is usually fast, you may want to disable this feature.


Double-click on the Opera icon on your desktop to launch it. Alternatively, click "Start," "All Programs" and then "Opera."


Click the drop-down arrow on the right side of the Opera Turbo icon and select "Configure." The Opera Turbo settings window will now appear.


Click "Off" and then "OK" to close the window. The Opera Turbo icon will now turn gray, and the Web pages you visit will load normally.
