The toolbars in LibreOffice provide quick access to various shortcuts, similar to the ribbon in Microsoft Office. But if you don’t love the icons, there are several different styles available, and you can change the size of the icons as well.

By default, the Tango style of icons is used and the icons are sized automatically for the selected style.
