There are no stupid questions.
With a new computer running Windows8.1 I noticed, that files DO NOT
open any longer, when I (double) click on their names or select them
and hit ENTER ... as it used to work with all other computers / OSs
in the past. I DO HAVE to open Writer, Calc or whatever and then use
the "open" command from within the software.
Like any application, LibreOffice cannot get involved until it is
started. It's up to your operating system to start whatever
application you want to use when you double-click a document file.
LibreOffice will have set "associations" for .odt, .ods, etc. file
types in your operating system when you installed it; you may or may
not have accepted its offer to set associations for .doc, .xls, etc.
Is that something peculiar to Windows?
Or another so-called "improvement" like the disabling of the styles menu?
Can I change this behavior?
Yes. One way is to run the LibreOffice installation again, this time
accepting the offer to set associations for Microsoft Office document
file types (if that is your problem). Otherwise, you can set
associations individually and manually. See
I trust this helps.
