How can the default zoom size be set for newly opened pages in Opera?

Opening a new empty tab in Opera, pasting in a URL and pressing Return displays the web page at zoom level 100%. How can it be set to open at, say, zoom level 215%?

Platform: Windows XP 64-bit, Opera 9.64 and Opera 11.0.

Note: short of using addons or setting the minimum zoom level (about:config, zoom.minPercent) to a high value, there is no equivalent in Firefox. The closest is having the site specific zoom (about:config, browser.zoom.siteSpecific) turned on (the default) as the last zoom level will be remembered (and must thus be initially set to the desired zoom level for each site) and thus new tabs will probably be set to a convenient zoom level. – Peter Mortensen Dec 29 '11 at 17:37

Open the following URL in Opera.


Change the number, 100, to the desired zoom level, say 215, and save the new setting by pressing the Save button at the bottom of the page (it is a long page!).

Opera may acknowledge by

JavaScript. <opera:config>. Setting saved. Scale. Some changes may require a restart to take effect.

Press the OK button. In this case, it takes effect immediately; a restart is not necessary for this change.

Yes, practically it is close enough. But it can not be set to 215%, the closest vales are 200% and 250%. – Peter Mortensen Jan 1 '11 at 13:41
