Many options will be displayed under it. Choose the "delete" option under "browsing history", then choose the "cookies" option that will be displayed. Automatically, an option will pop up asking whether you want to delete all cookies or not. If you choose yes, then all the cookies will be automatically deleted.

Deleting cookies from Opera- choose "tools" option from toolbar then choose "preferences". Then, pick the "advanced" option from the tab that is opened, and choose "history" option that is given above "cookies". Then you can see an option named "memory cache".
