I tried to install the newest version but got an error message saying a .dll file was corrupted. I clicked RETRY but still no go. I'd like to revert to the version that preceded the newest one, how can I do that on a Lenovo laptop, Windows 10, 64 bit?

All older versions of LibreOffice are available in the archive. Continue to click there (more!) Until you reach your destination.

Thanks for pointing out the archive, I have bookmarked it and will advise all who are interested where it is. I'm trying to get friends and family to overcome their fear of freeware; there's a safe point between downloading everything you can and never downloading anything, and libreoffice is on the safe side and very much worth installing.

Thanks for the answer, but I realized the answer sat on my D drive(!?!). I still had the version 6.2.3 installation file (LibreOffice_6.2.3_Win_x64.msi) so I just deleted everything from D:\Program Files\LibreOffice, then reinstalled. LibreOffice_6.2.3_Win_x64.msi is a huge file (288,772 kb) but since I'm able to store it on an auxiliary drive, I'll keep it. And since the version of LibreOffice I have works so well -- one of the best downloads ever, IMO -- it will be a long time before I update.

And, a truly heartfelt "thank you" to the creators of this wonderful software.
