Wrong again...I questioned it. [User Prefs]/Opera Directory= simply tells
Opera what the full path to the profile folder is. I suggested that
perhaps the command line /Settings option path would override the user

Yes. I've also tried the following variations, without success"
F:\Opera\Opera.exe "/Settings C:\documents&settings\Eds\Application
F:\Opera\Opera.exe /Settings "C:\documents&settings\Eds\Application

I'm quite aware of which ini is in use. :-) One has a blank set of
toolbars and no menus, the other is Opera Standard.

You seem very proud of the relevance of your query, yet its relevance
still escapes me...at least within the bounds of Opera's documentation.
According to <http://www.opera.com/docs/switches/#win-only>, the command
line option '/Settings' is available to "Launch with specified settings
(opera6.ini) file." That tells me that I can either have multiple
opera6.ini files in the same profile folder ([User Prefs]/Opera
Directory=), and call them up individually using different names for each
ini, or that I can point to another profile and employ its Opera6.ini with
different user preferences. The former is questionable, but the latter
seems reasonable. It's not working using my syntax, and I am asking why.
