Do I have to view all of the sub-programs before I can open Writer?

Do it ONCE the long way.  In Win 7 or 8 right-click on its icon in the 
taskbar and choose Pin this program to the taskbar.  Close the program 
and the icon will remain there.  If you don't like exactly where it's 
sitting, click and drag it left or right.  If you don't want to leave it 
pinned, right-click on the  icon and choose Properties.  In the 
properties window look for Target; its contents will be highlighted in 
blue.  Press Ctrl+C to copy those contents. Close the properties 
window.  Right-click on the desktop , choose New >  Shortcut; Paste in 
the contents copied from the Target. (Mine looks like "C:\Program Files 
(x86)\ 3\program\swriter.exe" -- yours will probably be 
somewhat different .)  This creates a new icon on the desktop.
If you're using a different version of Windows you may have to adapt 
some of these steps to your situation.  Hope this helps.
