Auto fill username & password in Opera? [solved]

Q. I use Opera as my new web browser. But when I tell Opera to save my username and password for a site it does not seem to do. Like now when I go to the site it does NOT autofill the stored info. It does not even prompt me to save anymore login info for that site anymore. Can you help?!

A. Yes! In all likelihood Opera did save your login info, however, to autofill that info you need to press: CTRL+ENTER (the Ctrl key and the Enter key on your keyboard at the same time). When you do that Opera should autofill the info AND submit it which will log you in.

Followup: huzzah, that worked! Thx dude!
