Hi rance

"dies that delete them permanently..or can I retrieve them.."

Deleting the list of docs shown within LO simply deletes them from the "Recent documents" list. It does NOT touch the actual docs on the disc.

So yes, you can still retrieve them. Press Ctrl+O (for 'Open'), navigate to their folder & select from the listing.

If this helps then please tick the answer (✔)
...and/or show you like it with an uptick ()

As far as I am aware, you have deleted the list permanently. If you have been using the LibO defaults, the files you have storedwill be stored in the folder listed under TOOLS > OPTIONS > PATHS > MY DOCUMENTS for Linux. Other O/S's have slightly different settings.
