How to see both doc and odt files in Libre writer?

I'm converting to Libre Office from MS Office 2000. I have a lot of MS word .doc files and Excel .xls files.

When I'm in Libre Writer and click open file, I can see both .doc and .odt files which is great. I like this!

BUT, when I'm in Writer and click "save as" to save a file, although my default is set to .odt files I want to see the .doc files too. I do want to save all files from now on in the .odt format but I want to see the .doc files in the "save as" dialog so I can reference my past .doc file names.

Is there an option in Writer that can do this? If not, is there an add on that can do this?

As shown in the image above, my version of Libre Writer 5.3.4.2(x64), the save as dialog does not have an "all format" option. Wonder why yours does and mine doesn't?
