Description Marco A.G.Pinto 2019-07-15 14:31:14 UTC
It would be very useful to right-click on recent documents in the tiles window and be able to select "Open File Location".

I wanted to rename a document and had to open it, "save as" to change its filename and then delete the old file.

Sure, would love to have StartCenter context menu ability to specify a file system location--as alternative to the Open tab which picks its default from Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice -> Paths: 'My Documents' or as set temporarily to location of the last file edited/saved.

I read Marco's request as "open default file browser with the location of the file". We kept this can of worms closed in the past, though I've never been happy with the functionality as users do expect file management at the start center.

If we introduce a context menu it would also contain of the remove function that is currently only available per click on the top-right x. Would be an improvement for accessibility.
