Subject Re: A shortcut to open just the Writer section
Date Tue, 01 Apr 2014 00:42:58 GMT
On my systems (XP ; Win 7) there is one icon for Open Office.  Earlier, 
I tried to give an easy way for XP that provides icons for OO Writer, 
Calc and Draw

Win 7 - click on Start in lower left corner, select All Programs, right 
click on the individual program, select create icon.  This will appear 
on the desk top.  It can be moved to a tool bar from there.
