It would be very helpful to have the additional choice to open the folder of a file presented in the overview.

The folder should be opened in the systems default file manager.

It might be implemented via a context menu or maybe by adding another small round icon like the one with the (X) to remove the file from the list.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open Libreoffice (soffice.exe)
2. The visual recent file overview is presented

Actual Results:
From there the only actions are to open a file by clicking it's preview, or to remove it from the list by clicking the (X) icon on the preview.

Expected Results:
Either via context menu or an additional small round "open folder" icon the folder containing that file should be opened in the default file manager.

It would be handy too to have that choice also in the "Recent Documents" File menu, maybe also putting the "open folder" icon there, maybe by another means.

Reproducible: Always
