Hi every one, I've found a good video tutorial series about LibreOffice-6.1.3 LibreOffice-6.1.3 Video Tutorials but it is on a Desktop Environment maybe Gnome3; I'm not used to it and the way it shows elements. I'm a new traveler from Ms Windows Environment; Now I use Mint Tara which looks like Windows 7/XP.

Can you please point me to some good video tutorials on Mint, especially for LibreOffice calc for import / export of Data files. Thank you

Looks like it's on Debian from the curly wavy icon on the splash screen.

How LO looks on the screen is heavily dependent on the OS and GUI environment it's run on. For example, there are themes on Debian (and GNU/Linux in general) that can hugely change how things look. In other words, it's not exactly LO changing how it looks to you.

Whatever the case the underlying functionality is the same.

It appears most people deal with TheFrugalComputerGuy when it comes to videos. Here is a link to some Calc videos -> LibreOffice-Calc. A quick look doesn't reveal anything specific about your request.

Your request for something specific to Mint Tara is not proper. First, LO runs basically the same whichever OS is being used. As for looks, even within a single OS ( such as Mint Tara) you can modify, through the OS settings, the appearance of most items to your liking. Now multiply the number of options you can set by the number of OS systems available (even just Ubuntu based Linux) and you would have a hard time finding videos looking like yours.

My preference is the LO documentation found here -> LO User Guides

Even your request for importing/exporting data is too general as this can mean many things. You may want to look at the Calc getting started guide which contains a section on opening CSV files for a start.
