Questions about the browser interface

What are quick links?

When you are on certain sites (for example, on an airport website), you can see links to the site's main pages in the right part of the SmartBox. You can use these links to go directly to the section you need.

For more information, see the section Quick links to website pages.

What are the “Copy” and “Share” buttons for?

If you put the cursor in the SmartBox, the Copy and Share buttons appear in it:

Copy — Click this button to copy the address of the current page to the clipboard.

Share — Click this button and choose a social network to share a link to the current page with your friends.

For more information, see the section The “Copy” and “Share” buttons.

How can I turn off the “Copy” and “Share” buttons?

To remove the Copy and Share buttons from the SmartBox:

  1. Click   Settings.

  2. Go to the Appearance section.
  3. Turn off showing buttons in the SmartBox (the Show "Copy" and "Share" buttons in SmartBox option).

For more information, see the section The “Copy” and “Share” buttons.

How do I change the background?

  1. Open the Tableau.
  2. Click Change background in the lower-left corner of the browser window.
  3. Choose the desired background, or upload a new image using the button located in the right half of the list of background images.

How can I add more widgets to the Tableau?

At this time, you can add a maximum of 18 widgets to the Tableau.

For more information about adding a widget, see the section Tableau.

Why isn't the Tableau syncing?

In the most recent version of the browser, syncing the Tableau was discontinued. We believe that with the use of browsers for smartphones and tablets, syncing pinned widgets does more harm than good.

We are working toward giving users a different way to access the list of pinned widgets from any device.

How can I change the browser theme?

You can install browser themes from the web store. Unfortunately, not all themes are fully compatible with Yandex.Browser.

You can also change the page background that is displayed when opening a new tab:

  1. Open a new tab.
  2. Click Change background under the Tableau.
  3. Select the desired image.
  4. Click Done.
