Spatial Navigation & Opera

Focus States

Desktop Opera

On Opera’s site it mentions that spatial navigation should be enabled and Shift + Arrow will focus elements on the page.

This doesn’t really work as I’d expect, it won’t just start focusing.

I ended up using tab to step over the focusable elements and in certain scenarios where I found I couldn’t reach an element, using the Shift + Arrow key would give the unreachable element focus.

All in all, a combo of tab and Shift + Arrow should get you there.

Notes for future self:
