I like being able to select recent files when LO starts up, but the new portrayal using large icons is difficult to scan and uses screen real estate poorly. Is there a way to simply get a list of file names?

There's a request for enhancement on Bugzilla:
Bug 74834 - CONFIGURATION: Option to disable documents thumbnails on the New Start Screen
Status: NEW

"[...] It would be nice to have an option to disable Thumbnails on the Start Screen by either:

Reverting to the old start screen which was compact and usable
- or -
Providing a textual list of recent documents which could also benefit from additional information (modified date, pathway, etc) and so make use of the screen effectively."

(See also: Can I supress the images on the start screen?)

BTW: A list of the recently used documents is available in the menu File → Recent Documents.

Thanks for the info. I'm not sure I would call this an "enhancement". It was an enhancement that got us into this situation in the first place.
