    Need Help With LibreOffice

    Hi all, I was trying LibreOffice and have a problem. I have a file with all my MS Word Docs in it and one with all my MS Excel files. When I open WRITER and tell it to use the Word Docs file it does and when I open CALC and tell it to use the Excel file it does. Here is the problem, when I go back to Writer it has changed it's self and is now looking in the Excel file.

    It is like both programs can only look in one file. Is there any way to tell Writer to open files from THIS file and Calc to open files from THAT file? Thanks in advance. CC

    Desktop items open Libreoffice; windows bugged and flickering

    My mother's PC had the most bizarre bug I've ever seen this morning.

    PC specs: Windows 10 Home 64bit
    Version: 1903 when problem occurred (1909 now)

    What happened:
    • all desktop items, including folders, opened in Libreoffice Writer; once open it displayed a blank document then began flickering as if it had bugged while scrolling
    • opened Task Manager from the task bar, selecting the second tab opened the final tab, which began flickering like Libreoffice
    • problems stopped after a restart, then occurred again after another restart; then stopped after the PC ran for a short time
    • no error popups or BSODs
    • she said Candycrush reported an error earlier but it didn't occur when I looked at it; she said it mentioned "something about the desktop"

    Steps I've taken:
    • did a quick virus scan then reboot scan with Windows Defender; no problems found
    • sfc /scannow; no problems found
    • installed update KB4537572 and upgraded system to 1909; updates appear to have been successful, no other updates available

    At the moment the problem has disappeared, but since it reoccurred previously I'm not sure it hasn't been fixed.

    I'm out of ideas. What else can I check and what other tests can I run? Based on the given information could anyone suggest what the problem might be?

    Performance of LibreOffice in Ubuntu vs Windows

    Let's try to answer one by one:

    • Is it because Windows, in general, is slower than Ubuntu even on faster hardware?
      Which version of MS Windows, 7, 8 or 10; Ubuntu 16.04 using which Desktop Environment.
      I'll suggest you to try the latest version of both OSes, Windows10 and Ubuntu18.04LTS. with the latest Fresh version of LibreOffice that is as of today the 6.1.3 release.
    • Is it because Dell laptops, in general, are slower than HP laptops even with faster specs?
      Not true at all (^_-)
    • Is it because LibreOffice is optimized for Ubuntu, so it specifically is slower on Windows? No
      Here is how you can directly download the latest fresh version (6.1.3) of LibreOffice, and test it on both machines/Operating Systems. to decide what to do next:
