Disabling Speed Dial (allows a blank page at Start-up)
  1. In the Opera address bar, type in about:config or opera:config.
  2. User Prefs → Speed Dial State and set it to 3 (disabled).
  3. Save (bottom of page).
Now can get a blank page at start-up by Preferences → General and setting Start-up to "Start with Speed Dial".

Panel at top with text instead of icons
  1. Make the panel bar visible (F4 toggles visibility).
  2. Menu → Appearance (F12) → Toolbars
  3. Click
