Description joachim.krecher 2017-02-02 17:28:49 UTC
Double-cklicking a file in Windows Explorer produced by LibreOffice Writer and having the normal extension .odt creates an entry in the task line (below); clicking this entry gets the LibreOffice Writer surface into the foreground with the selected file shown.

This happens with the "preload" of LibreOffice Writer at the moment of starting the PC as well as without this what I have called preload.

What is expected is the "normal" behaviour of double-clicking a file in the explorer: the program connected with the type of that file (e.g., .pdf or .txt) is started, the file loaded and shown immediately on the screen (of course an additional entry is found in the task line). This procedure is executed successfull with pdf- and other types of files.

Changing the registry values of "ForegroundFlashCount" and of "ForegroundLockTimeout" in HKEY_CURRENT_USER\CONTROL PANEL\DESKTOP both to zero did not help.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Opening windows explorer
2.Finding the file (which has the extension .odt)
3.Double-clicking the name of that file 

Actual Results:  
The task line has a new entry

Expected Results:
The program (swriter.exe) is started and the selected file "opened" IMMEDIATELY in the foreground

Reproducible: Always
