Revision history [back]

I had the same problem. I finally figured out that I had to have an instance of MS Word open and then I could preview .odt files in explorer.

Then, for some reason, that stopped working. I was stumped until I tried creating a LibreOffice document as administrator. That worked for me. I can now view .odt files in explorer. I am using Windows 7

By the way, I have no issues viewing .odt files on my Windows 10 machine

I hoped that helped anyone else who is having the same issues. I like the preview because I don't have to open file up to see whats on it.
