As I might have said when I posted a question about opening a
password-protected Excel file, I updated LO to v126.96.36.199. Still can't
open that file, but that's not what this post is about.
One reason I delayed updating is what I read with regard to v4 -- the
icons in the menu bars are terrible! Way too large, as is the bar at

I also had some problems with the installation on Windows 7, although
they're different from the thread on that subject. I chose Custom

I can't change the address in the registry. Fortunately, this doesn't
seem to make a difference.
Of greater concern is that the new installation didn't maintain all my
settings, and every day I'm finding something I need to fix. The
installation more or less deleted my old one, which I had expected, but

recent documents being displayed (and no way that I've yet found to
reduce the number shown). Keyboard shortcuts are changed, and while
they're now consistent and make some sense they'll take some getting
I'm sure there are ways to fix some of the things I'm griping about and
I just need to keep looking, but it's sure putting a crimp in my
