Are you sure \ is not on your keyboard? If I switch to a Japanese

You can install an additional language in Windows and then you can
switch the keyboard layout.
and I thank everybody for their help.

You mean, your get a \ in a text document, but copy&paste it to the
'Find' or to the 'Replace' field does not work?
* Neither does copying the "tab portion" from any piece of text.
That cannot work. You need to use \t in the 'Replace' field.
* I do not use Linux, so those commands do not help me.
* This operation apparently does not work in a text editor either.
* I thought about replacing "space[" with something like "spacekk" (with
or without the space). THAT does not work either.
* I just tried to find simply "[" (without the quotes).
* Unchecking "Regular expressions" DOES find the brackets, but then
inserts "\t[" (where the \ is a backslash). But that is not what I want
.. and not helpful.
Does this really have to be so difficult?
I have no problem with the Find&Replace dialog.
Please try to use the English UI of Windows. Outside of LibreOffice go
to Settings > Time and Language > Language.
If you not have done it already install "English (United States)".
Again in Settings > Time and Language > Language in the field "Windows
display language" select "English (Unites States)". Restart Windows.
Now try again the Find&Replace dialog in LibreOffice.
To replace a space followed by [ with a tab you need, with 'Regular
Expression' checked, in the 'Find' field (before the \ is a space):
and in the 'Replace' field
