My question is - do you have MS Office installed on your system?

If No, then making sure that the "load/save" option is checked.
If Yes, then you may have to do the editing of the "file properties" using the file-browser.

I do not have MS Office installed on any of my systems and I make sure I check the option for loading/saving MSO files. I rarely have any issued with them either.

Hi :)
I'm not sure but this might help

Tools - Options - "+Load/Save"

The various sub-pages in there have a few options that might help. 2. Another way might be to right-click on 1 such document and find the "Chose program" or "Open with.." option. One of those should be clear about making it a 'permanent' default (except that you can use the same method to change it back another day if you wanted).
3.  In Windows just open a file-browser so that you can see documents inside any folder.  In the 
file-browser choose
Tools - Option - Folder Options - File types
errr, something like that in Xp anyway, then scroll down the list and choose which ones should be 
opened in LibreOffice.

I would like if it's possible when we install LO to make all the files
like : doc, docx, ppt, xls .... to be opened by LO ?




You should be given that option during the install process.
A screen should appear that will say something like "Do you want LO to
be the default program for opening MS Office documents"?
