It will be convenient to have a keyboard shortcut or mouse gesture for the frequently used action instead of navigating through menu and then clicking the desired menu item. For example, to open new private tab one have to click 3 times in the menu.
To create keyboard shortcut or mouse gesture, one should know the action code. For example, to find action code for 'new private tab', type new or private in the action field of keyboard shortcut or mouse gesture. Opera will show action code suggestions for that word and you can figure out the action code.

The above way of finding the action code won't work always. For example, you won't find action code for 'fit to width' because action code for it doesn't have neither fit nor width. You can find action code by looking through the menu setup file but it will be time consuming.
The menu setup will also show menu name at the top (highlighted in red) and included menus (highlighted in blue) within square brackets and this will help if you want to edit that menu.
