When OL opens it displays thumbnails of my recent docs & spreadsheets. It's large enough that the actual contents can be easily seen. I don't want those recent files to be displayed when opening OL. How do I prevent it?

Per Document: Disable >File>Properties...>General>Save preview image with this document
All Documents: Only support for >Tools>Options>Load/Save>Edit properties before saving
With probably unwanted side-effect: Under
Advanced>ExpertConfiguration>Edit PickListSize> Set new value 0
(This will also reduce the length of the PickList under Recent Documents to 0 (zero).

The Questioner might also consider directly opening a LibreOffice component (Writer, Calc, etc) instead of opening the LO Start dashboard. Each component will open with a new document (blank sheet) and one can use menu File -> Recent Documents to re-open the document he wants to work with.
