I don't want to have to open the entire application and then have to open Calc or Writer. I want to be able to launch the specific module I need to work with without the extra step. I am not a techie, just a normal end user.

I am using Windows 10 OS. Sorry for leaving that vital information off my question.

I assume you're a Windows users though you didn't say. Haven't you the components (applications) in a submenu of the start menu? That's how it works under Linux.

Note also that usually you don't want to open an application but a document. Double-clicking on the file icon is enough to launch the adequate component.

If you open Libre Office and then choose Writer, you get a window with Libre Office Writer right? I don't know if it works the same on Microsoft, but at least on Linux it works like that.

You can then just pin the window to your task bar.

Thank you for your reply. I was able to find the exe files I wanted and create shortcuts.
