Could you attach a screenshot from your desktop computer to see what you described?

On desktop, reinstall OO, choosing to do a Custom installation and make sure Impress is checked.

@RoryOF. Thanks, it was as simple as that. I am still baffled why a 'Custom' install is needed on one device and 'Typical' install on the other. Anyway problem solved

If OO had previously been installed on that machine, lacking some of its applications, the new install picks up the old configuration.
