Workspaces Tab Grouping feature in Opera browser

The browser should switch to the latest version on and install it automatically.
Workspaces function hides under the sidebar of the Opera. So, select ‘Sidebar options’ visible as the 3 dots at the bottom of the window to enter ‘Sidebar Setup’.
There, at the top of the bar, you can find Workspaces function.
From here, you can easily create, customize, hide, or delete tab groups, as well as manage other useful tools and features in your Opera browser.
More options for Workspaces reside under the tab menu, like moving tabs (or a set of tabs) to another workspace.
You can make these options readily available by simply right-clicking on an open tab and choosing the desired option.
The Tab options, like reloading all tabs or highlighting duplicate tabs, work within your active window’s tab group only.
