Hi! I have a Mac OS X version 10.9.2

Every time I turn my computer on, I have to restart all of the applications that I downloaded from the internet--LibreOffice, Skype, VLC, etc. so I know it must be a setting on my computer. I would like to learn how to have them remain on my toolbar and running.

Then, I want LibreOffice to be my default office program, but right now all my documents are opening in TextEdit. When I control-click on a document, and select Open With, LibreOffice does not show up as an option even when it is open and running. Somehow my computer isn't recognizing that it's an option for viewing/editing documents.

How to Load LibreOffice during System Startup through Quickstarter

In any LibreOffice application:

  1. Tools > Options
  2. Expand LibreOffice
  3. Select 'Memory'
  4. Tick 'Load LibreOffice during system start-up'.

If LibreOffice is not appearing as an option for opening files then it may be time to reinstall.
