Why does draw file only open in Impress

I can create a drawing in Draw, but every time I attempt to open it, it opens it in Impress. Since they both use the odg suffix, it seems to me that this is part of the problem.

I'm using Windows 10 and noticed this question is still unanswered since 2016. Impress Draw Version: (x64) Build ID: 90f8dcf33c87b3705e78202e3df5142b201bd805 CPU threads: 4; OS: Windows 10.0; UI render: default; Locale: en-US (en_US); Calc: group threaded

[The process can be performed accordingly for the other LibreOffice modules (Calc, Impress Draw, etc.).]

I hope, it can help you.

ODG isn't Impress file: ODP is.

Impress uses .odp, while Draw uses .odg

"ODG isn't Impress file: ODP is."

UNder windows 10 file explorer 'filename.odg' has a type OpenDocument Presentation".

This is not and answer to OPs (your own) question. Please remove and add as a comment, if you believe that it is telling about the format Impress saves files rather then a consequence of the misconfiguration of your Windows system, which has an incorrect file extension association of ODG to "OpenDocument Presentation" (and this is the cause of your problem). This sadly makes me assume that you did not read the link @ebot provided.
