How to open up the default LibreOffice start screen after a document is opened

If you call the command, libreoffice with no arguments, it will bring up a screen showing your recent documents, along with options for creating or opening documents of various types.

If you have a document already opened, the "libreoffice" command will only take you to that opened document. You can no longer see that default screen.

My question is how can you get that screen back without having to first close all your document windows.

Idealistically there might be a way to get to it from a clickable option within the opened document. If that isn't possible, is there some other way, such as a command argument.

Thanks in advance for any input.
