Windows 7: Opera Reload Shortcut

Opera Reload Shortcut

I would like to create a reload shortcut that I could map one of my mouse buttons to, so that it would be more convenient to reload a webpage (Opera). I have searched for an .exe in the Opera directory and through the system, but found nothing, other than some commands in Opera's Toolbar.ini, but I'm assuming this simply controls something within the Opera.exe. Without being a programmer, is this possible?

EDIT: I scanned a list of Opera keyboard shortcuts, and all that they showed was a shortcut to reload all pages, and even this has been removed in the current version.

Seekermeister, I have searched high and low to see if I could find could find something akin to what you are looking for but no luck.

The closest I could come is Opera's mouse gestures which allows you to reload the page with a simple up/down mouse movement.

I won't give up looking though.

Thanks, but I always turn off mouse gestures, because they don't seem to work right for me.
