I recently managed to download LO onto one of my computers, failed to install on another (the “Exit LibreOffice” during installation message) but think I have found a solution suggested for that already.
My query is: all documents on the computer with LO now appear as LO documents by icon, and automatically open in LO by default. I would prefer to keep my MS Word docs in their original format as they open much faster than in LO and I am more familiar with MS Office.
How can I set this up and get the MS docs back to how they were? Also, and I apologize if this is a stupid question, but am I correct in assuming that LO is cloud based and therefore only usable as long as there is an Internet connection? That would be another reason for my wishing to keep my current saved documents in the form of Word, so I could access them when I might have a connection problem.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions or answers.
