In Windows 10 (64-bit) LO, Tools->Options->General shows a "featureless" title
LibreOffice File Associations
i.e. there are no actual controllable options listed after it (screenshot attached). This does not appear at all on Linux, so it seems to be OS-specific.
(Don't know if this is intended to let the user control *OS* file associations... which would be very nice because AFAIK there is currently no easy way to make LibreOffice be the default app to open .doc .docx, .xlsx etc. as well as all the ODF file types without manually selecting LO for each file type individually, which is both painful and unrealistic for ordinary people to do.)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Tools->Options and click "General"
See "LibreOffice File Associations" at the bottom but no options to control.

Jim, you can move down a bottom border of the dialog window and you'll see a button (that's windows specific option)
UX-team, possibly we should make Options dialog wider and heigher by default?
The dialog *has no scroll bar* like other things which have off-screen content, so it is not obvious that there is anything more to see; and the OS provides no border or resize handles/corner indicator because it is a modal pop-up.
Why not make pop-ups always large enough to hold all their content?
The limitation is available screen size, which "in general" could be quite small, for example in a Virtual Machine the user can make the virtual desktop any size.
Currently LO's pop-ups and menus are not usable if the screen is too small to contain all their content. The exception is in Writer where tool-bar drop-downs now auto-cascade very nicely according to how wide the LO window is. However the primary menus (File, Edit, ... Tools, ...) don't work that way; in particular the bottom items in the "Tools" menu are inaccessible if the screen is too short to allow the whole menu to be seen at once.

Better add a GtkScrollWindow behind the content in this tab. Jim expects a scrollbar when content is out of sight.
