    Default Libre Office first window

    When I start LibreOffice I would prefer to have all the recent files visible instead I have a new Writer file.
    Is there a way to change this behaviour?
    Searching in Leap menu and in LibreOffice options don't give useful results.

    Starting LibreOffice in konsole with command line
    ~> soffice
    give the window I'd prefer.

    Hi,

    How do you start LibreOffice normally?

    What do you mean with "Leap menu"?

    And what desktop environment are you using?

    Hi
    Add the /usr/share/applications/startcenter.desktop menu item, or search for LibreOffice in the menu system.

    If I start libreoffice (not librewriter), I get window with last dozen or so recent files displayed.

    If I start librewriter, I get new blank file to write on.

    I dont know what settings started libreoffice with recently opened files but I dont recall ever seeing anything other than recent files when opening libreoffice.

    Are you opening up librewriter? Try opening libreoffice to see if you still get a new file.

    The standard entry in the openSUSE KDE Plasma menu (the “program starter” – the “Application Launcher”) [for the case of GNOME or anything else, no idea … ] for LibreOffice uses the command “libreoffice %U” …

    This command will present you with a view of the recent files you've worked on with the various LibreOffice components.
    • You may have to forcibly reinstall the LibreOffice package to correct the command called by your User Interface – after doing that, you'll have to logout and then log back in again to correct the program starter.

    Reading all your answers I solved the problem.
    To start LibreOffice I use mainly the icon in "favorites" that actually start LibreOffice Writer with a new document.
    Instead using "libre Office" icon in "Office" group of menu when LibreOffice opens I get all recent files.
    Thanks to all.

    I think the basic difference is that libreoffice is a collection of different applications as writer, draw, calc... . libreoffice itself doesn't do anything but start the applications.
    librewriter is the actual application and it has it's own behaviour at start.

    And now I see, you were faster...
