Thank you for translating my probably poorly-worded request. That is exactly what I was asking. I haven't seen anything go back to the main menu like Open Office and Libre Office in at least 20 years. Normally when I open an application, particularly a word processor, its because I need to work on several documents in that application and gpoing back to main menu can be a nuisance. I may see if I can request that feature.

Many thanks.

On the upper right end of the top Menu Bar is an X box, click that and Writer will close and leave you in the Start screen. The Start/Splash is the same screen you get if you start soffice instead of one of the programs.


Yes indeed. However, if I understand correctly the question, Roger wants to know if there is a way to keep a standard Write window open, but with a grey work zone, just like what happens with Microsoft Windows.

To that, I'll say NO. I would add that most (all?) modules of LibreOffice are more tightly integrated than those of Microsoft Office, so no time or resources are "wasted" by loading the start screen.
