How are you trying to open them? If from within Open Office does the file type say "All files"?

Have you tried using Search in File Explorer? If yes, what happened?

Are you saying you don't remember the file name or where you saved them to?

In Open Office Writer, click on 'File' and then on the > triangle next to 'Recent Documents' and see if they are listed there.

Also I expect you have already, in Windows File Explorer, looked in My Documents.

Maybe it saved them to the last place you saved to? That may not have been Documents.
