       Do you have both WIN and LO open at the same time?;
            if so, then close the one you're not using ... open the one you
wish to use.

       [re. saving a document], when you click on 'file', there are other
save features but the main ones are 'save' vs. 'save as' - ignore the
others since these merely add the suffix for you; the same problems arise
if you click on 'save'.  THEREFORE click on 'save as' then follow the
blocks - choosing the suffix you desire, choosing the folder you desire,
then clicking to save.

thinking of trying 3.5.4 since some think that s the best version to try
with windows 7 but trying abiword and I B M lotus and Kingsoft  maybe they
won t throw fits at windows 7 so no hurry to reset w7; libre needs fixing
not windows 7 .

Windows 7 came with the lap top; when i use save as i have 7 choices so
which is the best to use; save as with libre and can i get a save doc
format switched over to saved as; and would libre stop having win7 fits i
wonder .

And a screen shot of what ? ?   Whew  later .  .  .

Hi :)
Did you uninstall all versions of 'LO' that you got from "some freeware
site" and do an antivirus scan?  Did you download the 3.5.6 or
3.6.something LO from the official site and install as advised?

Is there any chance of giving us a screen-shot?

Also, just out of curiosity, have you used Win7 on any machine other than
your own?  Has anyone else used your machine that might have some
familiarity with Win7 when it's properly installed?  Did you install Win7
or was it already on the machine when you bought it?

Btw Abiword can save files in MS formats but you have to do
File - "Save As ..."
You can't set it to default to MS formats.  I tried nagging them about it
but gave up.  The native format it uses is the OpenDocument Format, same as
LO, same as almost every other word-processing program except MS and even
they purport to support it as a non-native format.  So, people using MS
Office 'should' be able to open your documents created in AbiWord.  I did
mention all this when i made some suggestions about what other free
word-processors were out there although not in as much detail.

Tom :)

Hi :)
To "get back to factory defaults" and 'switch off' all Extensions just
rename your User Profile.  Larry gave a link to help with that.  Here is
another link that will one day be merged with the one Larry gave

Factory defaults are possibly a bit less tweaked than whatever you had
installed so it may look a little different and may remove some
weirdnesses.  It's a good thing to try whenever you find weird things going
on.  It usually beats a reinstall assuming you have now installed a proper
version of LO.

Regards from
Tom :)

windows 7 never had any word programs hate vista so explain if you dare;
you'd be the first why the word programs hate win 7 and why no one but no
one has a fix; this i got to hear.

I strongly recommend some computer crash curse. File name associations
are free.  There is nothing hard wired to the system. You can open any
file with any program you want. You can tell your desktop environment
which programs can open which types of files and which single program is
the preferred one to be used on double-click.
First of all, any user who is forced to use MS Windows should turn off
the option to hide known file name extensions. Since Windows '95 this is
the major obstacle which prevents people from understanding their system.
