    Where are Opera Cookies stored?

    I want to delete my WS cookies, see if it'll help with login problem here. But I can't find the cookie jar, and web search hasn't helped so far—it's all about how to delete them all, rather than selected ones.I've poked in…C:\Program Files (x86)\OperaandC:\Users\Lugh\AppData\Local\Opera Software…without success. I've also tried…C:\Users\Lugh\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Window s\INetCookies…which as far as I know is where Win10 stores some cookies [does "INet" mean IE, or something else?], also no joy.Anyone know of a utility which reveals all cookie locations, and which domain each one is for?

    Ccleaner would be my choice, it deletes cookies from most browsers and you can click on "Analyze" first to see what is there...

    I don't use Opera myself but this 'How to manage cookies in Opera' article (https://blogs.opera.com/news/2015/08...kies-in-opera/) appears to show their location, i.e. in Opera's profile folder. Having said that... Nir Sofer's 'ChromeCookiesView' appears to have added support to view 'Opera' cookies since v1.12. (See https://www.nirsoft.net/utils/chrome_cookies_view.html) Hope this helps...

    Thanks Rick, that article did lead me to discover how to list them—one of the many buttons & 'Learn More' links I'd learned to be blind to.

    Fyi Opera users, it's in Settings but not under the Browser tab. Go into the Privacy & Security tab, scroll to bottom to Cookies section which includes a "All cookies & site data" button.
    Interface in the resulting screen isn't good—you can either delete all, or one domain at a time.

    A comment below the same article showed how to get the actual HD location. Type "opera:about" in the address bar, and look in the Paths section. Mine's at:
    C:\Users\Lugh\AppData\Roaming\Opera Software\Opera Stable\Cookies

    The 'Roaming' was the gotcha here, as mentioned in OP I only tried 'Local". Of course, Opera's Cache path IS in Local, so why wouldn't… [insert steam-from-ears smiley]?

    ChromeCookiesView does indeed provide an Opera cookies view, better interface too imo.
    Lugh.
