Once the window opens, you need to go to the Settings, by pressing on the Opera button which is located in the upper left corner of the screen.
There are several sections here, Browser, Website, Privacy & Security and Opera Help, and in the Browser section there are several subsections.
In the Search section, you have two options, you can either select from the drop-down menu, which is now set as a Google Search.
