Is there a trick to tell LibreOffice, in particular Calc, to open files automatically?

Not that I know of. (Perhaps someone knows better.)

Lotus 123 allows to specify a folder and then opens the files therein automatically whenever the software is started. For those administrative tasks, a set of 2-3 files, this is VERY convenient. I would like to convert those 123-files into Calc format and have Calc open them *automatically* whenever I start Calc.

o (Probably best) Put the documents in a convenient folder. (You've done that already.) Create a shortcut to this on the desktop or in the start menu. When you need to open the documents, (1) click or double-click the shortcut to open the folder, (2) select all the document files together (using Edit | Select All or Ctrl+A?), and (3) press Enter to open all the documents (whether or not LibreOffice is already running).

I will try this last approach and see, if I can get it to work.
LibreOffice -> I use it on all my machines:
Windows XP (about to be decommisioned)
Windows 7
Windows 8.1
kubuntu 14.04
xubuntu 14.04
Mint 17, Cinnamon

The "problem" is naturally everywhere the same.
