I've installed OpenOffice.org, now what do I do?


Simply start the OpenOffice.org application.

  • Windows: After the installation, an entry for OpenOffice.org is listed in the Programs menu. The OOo 3 Setup program did place an OOo icon on your desktop.
After OpenOffice.org has started, an icon will be available on the system tray. (It looks like flying seagulls on a blue and white background.) Click on the icon with the right mouse button to quickly start the various different components of the office suite. This quick-launcher will automatically start when you log in.
  • Linux: If you installed the desktop integration, you will find OpenOffice.org in your program list. If you prefer to use the terminal, navigate to the OOo/program folder and start the soffice script.
  • Mac: The OOo icon starts the Writer window first. Choose File > New menu to open the other programs like Calc, Impress, Draw.
