No, he doesn't want it at start-up, it seems, but instead when he starts
LibreOffice. But something like this as a desktop shortcut or menu item
(not in the start-up folder) is no doubt ideal.
Since we're talking windows (I missed that information from previous post,
sorry), making a shortcut that open multiple files is trivial. The only
"obstacle" would be to easily get all the file paths.
To create the shortcut (on the desktop or anywhere else really): in the
start menu, go to the LibreOffice entry (no need to use "calc"
specifically), and right-click-drag (drag with the right click) where you
want the shortcut. When releasing the mouse button, a menu show up giving
the occasion to create a shortcut.
At this point, the new shortcut can be edited (right click->properties). In
the "target" box, there's something that end with soffice.exe". You can put
file names after this. For example, the whole box could read like this
(including the quotes):
"C:\Program Files (x86)\LibreOffice 4\program\soffice.exe"
Then click ok. That link will cause LibreOffice to open all the given
As a final hint, there's a way to *easily* get all the files you want, with
- Open a shell (no, it won't hurt) by pressing Win+R, and typing "cmd" as
- In the shell, type (without the quotes of course): "more >
- Drag'n'drop all your files one by one in the shell window, pressing
space after each files
- When done, press return, then ctrl+c
- type "exit" to leave the shell
At this point, you have a file named "filelist.txt" on your desktop,
containing all files with full path. You just have to copy/paste this
string in your shortcut :)
As said by others, I'd rather not see LibreOffice itself getting this
"feature". It is something that can be achieved rather easily in any OS.
One could argue that it's even *the point* of modern systems...
