Description Joel Madero 2015-01-08 19:43:38 UTC
Win 8.1
LibreOffice 4.3.5

1. Download LibreOffice;
2. Install
3. During install make sure to select "Load at startup" (or the equivalent of that)
4. Reboot after install

QuickStarter does not load on startup. Go to Tools -> Options -> Memory -> "Load LibreOffice during system start-up" and note that it is not checked.

QuickStart loads up and option is checked.

Broken at least sine from what I can tell. Wasn't available in 3.5, probably never worked right.

Setting to:
Trivial - workaround is just to check the box in the settings after you install. Doesn't really slow down anything in terms of creating professional quality work.

I think it is a duplicate as the same install package (msi) is used for clean installs and upgrades. 
I confirm that quickstarter is not active after a clean install, bit didn't mention that in bug 35568 as I didn't know if that was intentional. With an upgrade you notice the change in setting "Load at startup".

But I wouldn't dare to change the status to duplicates, with so many QA-people in the discussion ;-)

I tested but didn't reproduced this on a (real) clean install, meaning computer that never had LO.
Comment 8 Timur 2016-02-24 15:24:42 UTC
With some more tests, I did reproduce. Seems occasional.

Dear Joel Madero,

To make sure we're focusing on the bugs that affect our users today, LibreOffice QA is asking bug reporters and confirmers to retest open, confirmed bugs which have not been touched for over a year.

There have been thousands of bug fixes and commits since anyone checked on this bug report. During that time, it's possible that the bug has been fixed, or the details of the problem have changed. We'd really appreciate your help in getting confirmation that the bug is still present.

If you have time, please do the following:

Test to see if the bug is still present with the latest version of LibreOffice from

If the bug is present, please leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.
If the bug is NOT present, please set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED-WORKSFORME and leave a comment that includes the information from Help - About LibreOffice.

Please DO NOT

Update the version field
Reply via email (please reply directly on the bug tracker)
Set the bug's Status field to RESOLVED - FIXED (this status has a particular meaning that is not 
appropriate in this case)

If you want to do more to help you can test to see if your issue is a REGRESSION. To do so:
1. Download and install oldest version of LibreOffice (usually 3.3 unless your bug pertains to a feature added after 3.3) from

2. Test your bug
3. Leave a comment with your results.
4a. If the bug was present with 3.3 - set version to 'inherited from OOo';
4b. If the bug was not present in 3.3 - add 'regression' to keyword
