Please be more specific. What kind of document are you using? Is it a text document, a spreadsheet, a presentation? Give a specific example of what you want to do.
Windows 10 and Linux Mint, since 2017

G'day,
On the spreadsheet I would like to change the default cursor direction so instead of the cursor going down after pressing enter I would like it move to the right direction after pressing enter.
I can't seem to find the option to change the cursor direction like in excel.
Also how does one use sort a row after selecting ex. 32451 to 12345.

We normally prefer separate topics for different problems.
You have now given two different problems.
Regarding the original question, you'll find that setting by going to Tools -> Options -> LibreOffice Calc -> General
It's listed under Input Settings.

Regarding your second question, are the numbers you gave in a single cell, or is each digit in a different cell?
If each one is in a different cell, then just highlight the cells you want to sort, then use Data -> Sort
You if it's a simple sort, then you can choose Data -> Sort Ascending or Data -> Sort Descending
if they are in a single cell, then the problem becomes much more complicated.
OpenOffice 4.1.7 and LibreOffice 6.3.3.2 on Windows 7 Pro & Ultimate
