How to start OpenOffice with several often used files

Postby kabuye » Tue Sep 07, 2021 5:52 pm

I usually have several common files open in the programme and, once I exit and then open again, it's quite tiring to locate several files and open them individually so, I wondered if there was a way to have OpenOffice load these files every time I launch the programme?

Tips:

- Try to write a batch file in the Windows, what launches all of the needed documents.
- Try to write a macro in the OpenOffice. Assign the macro to an application event.

Google openoffice command line and find what options there are.

Use CMD, and type C:\Program Files (x86)\Open Office 4\Program\soffice -? and press Enter to list all the options.

C:\Program Files (x86)\Open Office 4\Program\soffice -writer C:\Users\John\Desktop\fred.odt C:\Users\John\Desktop\tom.odt opens fred.odt and tom.odt. Put the command in a batch file and run the batch file.
