Your issue maybe related to Open GL, explanation on the following link:

I run LibreOffice Version 6.1.3.2 on my Windows 10 preview machine without any problems.

Open Office?

The majority of openoffice developers left for The Document Foundation that produces LibreOffice, including the developer of GoOO (GoOpenOffice) and it is IMHO a better OpenSource product than Open Office.;)

do yourself a favour and by the MS office key from ebay from 15-25£

I use open office for last 3 years, and I dont want to go into the specifics because I would have to write 10 pages, 

but lets just say that functionality isn't the same

You have quoted OpenOffice and not LibreOffice. Also having spoken to a works supplier of Specialist Software who have to use it to check any issues with compatibility has advised to stay clear as everything has changed - nothing is in the same place as more recent releases. And I could get it for less than the prices you have quoted.

A few days ago had an email from Softmaker Office offering the pro version for a one-off payment of £25.99 to be installed up to 5 machines - wonder if that includes users?

A supplier of software used at work has recently informed me that MS Office 2019 looks and feels like Office 365 - I think I am definitely giving it a clear birth.
