2016-02-05 14:45:48 +0100 answered a question Calc cannot save in .ods format after upgrading to Windows 10

This was Happening on a Samsung ATIV NP940X3g-K04US originally with Windows 8.1.

It seems that the problem with saving .odt files was resolved after I used Samsung Update to re-install the "Chipset Drivers".

Note: Some of the keyboard functions (Fn + F1/F2/F3/etc: screen brightness, WiFi on/off, etc...) that were not working, are now working.

2016-01-18 14:21:51 +0100 answered a question Libreoffice 4.x-5.x - massive Problems with Installation on (update to) Windows 10

I did a clean install of windows 10 (Home - ver1511) using a USB stick with installation media.

This went very well and I got rid of all the "junk" programs I had before. I had to re-install all the useful programs I use, including Libre Office

It worked fine except that I have a few files (mostly CALC) that cannot be saved in in ODF format. I have to use the .xls or .xlsx format. I am trying to resolve this on this site. I am not sure at this time if the problem is Libre Office or W10.

2016-01-15 17:28:23 +0100 asked a question Calc cannot save in .ods format after upgrading to Windows 10

I just upgraded to W10 from W8.1. I used a USB flash drive to make a "windows 10 installation media" and perform a clean install. I then re-installed the programs I need, including Libre Office

Now, when I try to edit existing .ods files, I cannot save them in this format. I get an error:

< Libre Office

< Error saving the document Xxxxxx:

< Write error.

< The file could not be written.

< [OK]

The only solution I found is to save the Calc files as .xlsx or .xls format

I can modify and save text files in .odt format

I can edit and save .pdf files using Tracker Software PDF-viewer and also .txt files using either Libre Office or Helios TextPad.

I have noticed that W10 is showing that all folders created after the upgrade are (erroneously) set as "READ ONLY" and it seems impossible to turn this off. It does not prevent saving edited files, EXCEPT the .ods

I would appreciate any help on this,
