sometimes writer starts on a blank page sometimes a view of documents?

On some computers, when I start the writer, I just get put into a blank document.

On other computers, it comes up with a view of my recent documents.

How do I control which way it starts (I want all the computers to appear the same)?

I’ve looked through the options but couldn’t find anything.

On my system I can control the startup by choosing the application. My icon for LibreOffice 5.1 Writer will give me a blank document. If I choose the LibreOffice 5.1 Icon, I will get a choice of documents. Are you starting LibreOffice in a different way on different computers?
