In this tutorial we will show you how to set up Proxy on Opera for Windows but first let’s see what are our requirements.

Requirements

In order to set up the Proxy on Windows you will need:

  1. A CactusVPN account. If you don’t have one you can try our services for free.
  2. Your Proxy username, password and Proxy server address. You can find them in the client area on our website, by going to your service details.

Go step-by-step through following instructions:

  1. In the Opera browser, press the Opera button (1).
