# How can I disable a specific plugin in Opera (Windows)

I'd like to disable NSAPI plugins like QuickTime and Adobe Reader in Opera. How can I do this while leaving specific plugins I /do/ want (e.g. Flash) enabled?

Opera 10.63 on Windows Vista.

-

The easiest way to disable any plug in from Opera was: just write in the Opera address bar opera:plugins and then you will have all details for installed plugins and the ability to change and disable them.

-

In opera, paste this into the address bar:

opera:config#Extensions|Plugins


That should allow you to enable/disable plugins, or view the file path of the plugin so it can be deleted from the plugins folder in opera.

-

Close down Opera and add the dll filename to plugin-ignore.ini. It's in "C:\Program Files\Opera\defaults". You can goto opera:plugins in the address field to see what the filenames are for plug-ins Opera is detecting.

For Opera 11, you can just goto opera:plugins and disable the ones you want right from the UI.
