I have noticed that sometimes when I open a Libreoffice document a shortcut

re-open the document, delete the shortcut and close the document.

What is happening here?

Windows 8.1 and Libreoffice

It sounds like a Win8 issue with how it treats "lock" file and their desktop "tiling" system.

Someone here must have upgraded to 8.1 or bought a system with it on, who can help you figure out "the mess" that Win8.x is doing to you and your files.


To be honest here, I am not a Win8 or 8.1 user, due to issues that would come up with how I do "work" on my Win7 systems that would be a real "pain" to do the same type of work on Win 8.x, according to all of the articles I have read.

Actually I am a Ubuntu user, using a different desktop than its Unity [tile based] desktop, and a Win XP and Win7 user for Windows work. Too many packages I use on Win7 will not work properly on Win8, according to their creators [both free and paid software], and Forget Windows Surface device.
