I have installed the programme but have to open the application through finder, is it possible to create a shortcut on my desktop or through Launchpad?

Yes you can.

  1. Locate LO (LibreOffice) - it's probably on your applications folder.
  2. Highlight the LO icon by clicking on it ONCE.
  3. With the cursor on the icon hold down the COMMAND key and the 'L' key at the same time this will create an alias (there will be a small arrow in the new icon in the bottom left hand corner)
  4. Drag and drop this alias icon to your desk top
  5. Test out the alias by DOUBLE clicking on the icon - it should startup LO
