Hi :)
This thread is a good one to 'hijack' for your purpose :)  The link for posting "wish-list" items 
or "Feature requests" (whatever you want to call them) is
without a dot at the end.  When you post a bug-report one of the drop-downs has "Feature request" 
or something similar.

Please let us know which Operating System you are using.  Most including Windows do have individual 
icons already but not cluttering up the desktop.  You can add them there.  In Windows Xp click on 
the "Start" button then

"All Programs" - LibreOffice ... 

Now right-click on Writer and choose 

"Send to .." - "Desktop (create shortcut)"  

Since you also use Calc it might be good to do the same with that one but since you don't seem to 
use the rest you don't need to have them cluttering up desktop 'real-estate'.  

Another way of opening files is just to double-click on them, or right-click and then the button 
"Open with ...".  LibreOffice should be in the list but only if you have already opened that sort 
of file with LibreOffice.  You can choose to always open with this app and that tick-box is already 
ticked-by-default in Windows.  

Navigation might be easier if you use the "Places" panel on the left-hand-side of the load/save 
dialogue box.  It might be possible that you have it set to "Explorer/Tree" instead of "Places".  
In most OSes you can, to some extent, set which folders are displayed in there but i am not sure 
how to set mount-points in Windows.  Different partitions should be there already tho.  

Regards from
Tom :)

I have been looking for the suggestion bin, hope you do not mind me adding
to this thread.

there are two things I would like to see.  being a total user, I have no idea how easy it is to 
do either.

first, I would like to have separate icons so I can just open calc or writer and not have to open 
a home page, then select the application.

If you work in Windows open the folder where the LibO is installed and find the
"program: folder (e.g. C:\Program Files\LibreOffice 3.4\program)
Then sort the files by type to have the .exe files on the top of list.
Drag and drop their icons to the desktop to create shortcuts (e.g. scalc.exe for Calc)
Using the shortcuts wil open the desired application directly.


Another wish list item.  I have my hard disk partitioned so I have all my wordprocessing files in 
one folder and all my spreadsheet files in another.  I have to navigate back and forth.  if I am 
in the spreadsheet, I have to save-as, then navigate to the calc folder.  there may be advantages 
for doing this another way, but this is my wish list.

Create on desktop shortcuts to those folders and start editing your documents in them (right click 
- new - Libo table ... the menu items may be different originaly in English) When saving the 
document the starting folder should be offered)

By the way - I think that storing the documents into folders depending on used application is not 
the best idea.  I prefer to store documents using "a problem structure folders" (e.g.
