In the Options dialog, click OpenOffice.org > Memory. On the OpenOffice.org – Memory dialog:
- More memory can make OpenOffice.org faster and more convenient (for example, more undo steps require more memory); but the trade-off is less memory available for other applications and you could run out of memory altogether.
- To load the Quickstarter (an icon on the desktop or in the system tray) when you start your computer, select the option near the bottom of the dialog. This makes OpenOffice.org start faster; the trade-off is OOo uses some memory even when not being used. This option (called Enable systray quickstarter) is disabled in some Linux installations.
