I'm using a Toshiba 64-bit laptop, running Windows 10 Home, 8gb memory, 1Tb hard drive.

I recently downloaded Libre Office and have been trying to change the background colors of the Toolbar and Menus, mainly in Writer since I use it the most. I've tried various things but nothing seems to work. It is currently a light gray and some of the icons are very difficult to see. Thanks for any suggestions you can make.

You can do this with LO themes:

From the menu choose Tools->Options then under LibreOffice->Personalization then Select Theme button. Then pick a category, wait for the selections to fill from the internet and select one or choose a different category.

No can do
(unless you download the source, change the relevant parts and compile it yourself).

Oh, that's too bad. Some of those icons are almost invisible on that background.
I don't know the programming language, how to download it, or how to compile it, or I might give it a shot. Batting a 1,000, on the negative side. Is there a tutorial on how to do all that kind of stuff?

Thanks for the prompt answer about the color.

To improve the visibility of the icons you could try a different icon set and/or icon size, via the menu "Tools : Options..." > LibreOffice > View > icon size and style". ( the Large Galaxy icons are well visible in my theme.. )
