After updating to LO my open icon instead of opening previous documents says "Open Remote File". I have to "ctrl o" to open a file and then go to the file to open. Also under "File - Recent Documents" it says "No Files." I really appreciated the convience of clicking on the "OPEN icon" to get my files. Is that option available in LO

Re 1: you can restore the Open file button in Tools - Customize, select the Toolbars tab, select Standard and tick Open... (and remove the tick mark in Open remote file if you don't use that a lot).

Re 2: not quite sure about that, but if you had to reset your user profile recently, you probably lost the history of recently opened files.

EDIT enter your name in Tools - Options - User Data.

I don't know about "reset your user profile". I had to uninstall the previous version of LO in order to install LO, so that may have reset my profile. I had already removed the tick on "Open remote file" icon and have opened several files/documents since then, but it still does not give me a history. Although I only have a tick by the "Open" icon, when I click on the sidebar next to the icon I still get the phrase "Open Remote File." I also get that which I click on the icon. I have removed the tick by the "Open" icon and restarted LO Writer but I get the same results.
Any other suggestions?
