I'm not sure what you mean, there's no default Office suite as far as I know on my 2 Win 10 systems.

Do you want to change the default for (for example) .doc(x) files to LibreOffice, in which case Settings/ System, Apps/ Default Apps is the way to go.

This from the Windows 10 Forums may be of help - it shows the large variety of ways that default apps can be set up in Win 10.

oh yeah, never thought of that, Installing Libre office will link the files to it anyway.
