My GIMP program is not in color

The program, which I downloaded twice, to see if I somehow had a bad download, is in black and white, not color. The imported images (photos, etc) are in color, but the program itself (toolbox, layers, etc.) are all in black & white or grayscale. Help!

Edit > Preferences > Interface > Theme / Icon Theme

It usually helps reading release notes :)

This link is for 15 other themes. It says their for 2.8, but 2.10 will use 'em to. To learn where to park them in the app. Head down to the folders section of Preferences, open the themes option, there should be two directory paths there. Placing the unziped themes in either one of these directories will allow them to be shown as theme options. This vidio will walk you through the process, and when the description is expanded there is a link to a onedrive zip file. If unable to open zips, two FOSS apps to open this are 7Zip, or peazip Vid is here:

The four options you see here are from Gimp> Preference > Theme

While here, click on Icon theme, the menu just below theme and you will manage to change the display color of your icons. see screenshot

Hello, I am really new to this program. I downloaded and everything was in black & white. I now have a white background the icons are in color. BUT when I try to select the paint bucket or brush, I cannot get a color pallet. It's still a choice of black or white. What do I need to do to retrieve the colors for this program.

Help please!!! ~ Barb
