In the "File->Open..." window, changes to the View setting are not remembered. How do I get LibreOffice to permanently remember my choice of "Detailed View" for the view setting?

If I change it from "Short View" to "Detailed View", it returns to "Short View" the next time I use "File->Open..."

You can use the commands below to play with this View setting: File->Open... <right click="" blank="" window="">View Short View X Detailed View Tree View Detailed Tree View File->Open (reverts back to "Short View")

How do I get LibreOffice to permanently remember/retain my setting of "Detailed View"?

You should at least mention, which operating system you are using and whether you are using setting Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> General -> [x] Use LibreOffice Dialogs. If the latter isn't the case, I'd consider the question not an LibreOffice issue but your operating system's problem, since in that case the dialog is provided by the operating system.

What is that Detailed View anyway? I don't see it with Gtk3/Gnome file dialog and also the internal dialog doesn't have it. I assume it's switching between icon view and viewing, well, details like date and size.

Opaque: I'm using LibreOffice version on Debian Linux 10 under KDE. In LibreOffice version 6, the option "Use LibreOffice Dialogs" not longer exists. But based on your suggestion, I believe I found at solution at "". Thank you for the suggestion.

erAck: "Detailed View" shows each files Name, Type, Size, and Modification Date. "Short View" only shows each files Name. I specifically wanted the default view to include the Modification Date.

This problem is fixed in LibreOffice version 6.3.3-2~bpo10+1 (Debian buster-backports).
