is there a work around to just get writer to open up without the recent files window? [closed]

Or at least make an option to omit that screen when opening up writer.

If you close the last document you worked on, but let still run the LibreOffice desktop, you will again get the recent files thumbnails.

To avoid this generally you need to set the length of the PickList to 0 (zero).
For the details see my answer in this recent thread.

The .exe for writer is found here: program files> LibreOffice > swriter.exe

That opens directly into writer vs the recent documents screen.
