Please explain what steps you have taken thus far. It may also help in knowing what OS and the specific version of LO you are using.

I use Windows 10 and LibreOffice Writer I tried to change the paper size to #10 envelope in LO Writer. I think I did that OK. However, you normally write on an envelope lengthwise (longitudinally) but I could not manage to do that. It still writes horizontally, at least on the computer screen. Things do not seem to match alright.

Normally I would suggest envelope printing using the Insert->Envelope method. However, there may be a bug in this regard. For that see this post -> Why, after 20 or more years, can't LibreOffice Write print envelopes?.

Your approach is probably the preferred method. I believe you only need to modify the orientation. Go to menu Format->Page and on the Page tab click on Landscape under Orientation.

Yes, that approach worked. Thanks a lot. The envelope shows on the screen horizontally (landscape orientation). However, the envelope should still be fed longitudinally into the printer (narrow side goes into the printer first). If you do all of these steps, LibreOffice prints envelopes just fine. Thanks again.
