writer cheeses me off when it takes the entire screen because I cannot use the minimise button

it never used to do this and changed for some reason

It's not the minimize button that you want. It is the middle button between Minimize (_) and Close (X) that controls whether the program is displayed as full-screen or something less than full-screen. If Writer opens now as full-screen it is probably because at some time you exited the program in full-screen mode. That setting is saved on exit.

Try Alt + Space to access window options.

Does this happens to any LibreOffice document or just for Writer's documents?

This has suddenly started happening to all LibreOffice applications: they all open maximised and I can't find a way to stop it. If I resize the window to smaller and then exit, it still restarts maximised. Is this a new feature, either of LibreOffice or of Linux (generally) or Gnome or Cinnamon (specifically; I'm running a new install of Mint 19 Cinnamon).
