Is there any way to start any of the individual Libre Office

On the upper right end of the top Menu Bar is an X box, click that and Writer will close and

Yes indeed. However, if I understand correctly the question, Roger wants to know if there is a

But in MS Word, when one closes the last open document, the grey screen is not a new document that
you can start typing in - it's just background. You still have to click on File/New or File/Open.

have a script that calls LibO with a parameter). I'm not sure whether it was in the preferences,
or somewhere in the menu system that this setting was found, but it was well-hidden.
Unfortunately, I have forgotten how it was done, and I haven't yet been able to find the original
references to it by searching the archives at OOo.
If anyone sees this and remembers, please let me know. It will also help the OP.
