how to speed up OpenOffice

OpenOffice is a great alternative to Microsoft Office. Here is a breif tutorial to speed up OpenOffice and decrease its loading time:

  1. Start OpenOffice (it doesn't matter which application you load, Calc, Impress, or Writer will all work)

  2. Click Tools>Options

  3. Select Java menu and uncheck "Use a Java runtime environment"

  4. Select the Memory Tab and change the following options:

  • Number of steps: 30

  • Use for Open Office: 128

  • Memory per Object: 20

  • Number of Objects: 20

Next time you start an application it should open much more quickly. But it will also eat up more memory. If you have enough memore (more than 1 GB) then this trick will definately reduce the loading time of OpenOffice from 10 sec to about 2 to 3 seconds.
