Windows Explorer recognizes the files as a LibreOffice Presentations, but for some reason the files keep getting directed to Writer when I go to open them.

I'm using LibreOffice Version:

Thanks in advance!

Got the .fodp files to open in Impress after I re-installed LibreOffice (same installer). Not sure what fixed it, or what the original cause was; but this time I used the typical settings instead of doing custom ones.
