Could anyone help me please? I want to put a shortcut on my desktop from an open document in Libre Office. I have windows 10. Thanks.

Use OS-provided features for this: find the file using file manager, copy it, then create shortcut in desired place (or use drag-and-drop using right mouse button). LibreOffice doesn't provide this functionality.

to unerstand the situation.
User code can use the SHELL() function to execute external programs. A batch script might then take parameters for the link to create by MKLINK. Just a first approach. I would shy back from complications and risks.
