Assuming a Windows system, this is known issue tdf#107166, corrected for most GPU/driver combos at and builds of 6.0.0alpha1+ master.

Some lingering issues for current Windows 10 with AMD GPUs.

There are the following settings (Tools menu > Options...) you should alter:

  • OpenGL
  • OpenCL
  • Hardware Accelaration

Try out...

Bear in mind that each new installing of an LO version should be accompanied by previous erasing/renaming the office user profile. Otherwise false settings are continued...

Set the rendering mode outside LibreOffice in any text editor. Edit the %APPDATA%\LibreOffice\4\user\registrymodifications.xcu profile and adjust the UseOpenGL, and UseOpenCL stanzas true or false.

In Windows 10, I am just closed all LibreOffice programs and killed the LibreOffice Quickstarter process; when I opened again any LibreOffice program it shows menu options.


En Windows 10, yo cerré todos los programas de LibreOffice y mate el proceso de LibreOffice QuickStarter; cuando abro cualquier programa de LibreOffice me muestra las opciones del menú.

Had same problem and tried to reinstall more recent versions without success. I reverted back to version and I deleted the LibreOffice folder before installing. Success! Need to temporary store files before deleting LibreOffice folder if you have stuff saved there. Might try to update but I am happy to have something back at the moment. Good Luck Mick
