If you mean that they appear on the desktop, move the files to another folder.

  1. Open the destination folder,
  2. Select the files you wish to move,
  3. Drag the files from your desktop to the folder.

Next time you create a new writer file, save it to another folder, not on your desktop (e. g. the Documents folder might work fine).

Thanks for your time pavelktomas, It is not so much 'moving' them. They are in my saved for a better word, within Libre. It is more how did they or do they appear on my screen/desktop. It is how do I just remove them from the screen. Regards David.

Can you post a screenshot? I do not think I understand what you mean. Desktop is basically a folder. You always save a file in a folder. If you choose your desktop as the destination folder, the icon automatically appears there.

Hi again pavelktomas, My computer wording is not good. The icon is appearing on the screen, it is also in a folder, I would just like to remove it from the screen. I do not know how to do screen shots. I will check the settings in my 'Libreoffice" to see if there is a way to remove it. Regards David.
