New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.

Under Review

This request is on our roadmap, but we don't have timelines to share yet. We'll update this idea when there are more details to share. Thank you!

I've given up on this... 2 years of waiting and this being in the top 3 most voted ideas

Do we have a date for the dark mode in the Power BI Desktop release yet? My eyes start to be red from the light mode.

Check out Inforiver! They offer options to use dark/light mode and plenty of customization options.

again, low vision and I enjoy being able to increase font sizes and change colors. I've changed my Windows System Fonts and P-BI doesn't use them. Windows Explorer using my Windows System settings for fonts, colors and backgrounds but P-BI... I'm FORCED to struggle.

Some things, like the DAX editor, I can hold the shift key and scroll to increase/decrease my DAX code but for the menus... I'm SOL. Thanks!!!!

As a low vision person, I'm INSULTED that Microsoft removed this obviously necessary feature.

In Themes, I tried changing my mode to Dark Mode. I now have Dark Mode in Windows Explorer but still do not have Dark Mode in P-BI.. Thanks Microsoft!!!!

My temporary fix not just for Power BI Desktop, but across the board, is:

1. Turn on Windows night mode.
Settings / System / Display / Night Light
2. Choose the Dusk contrast theme.
Settings / Accessibility / Contrast Themes / Dusk (or whatever you prefer)

Alternately, you might choose some combination of Dark Mode, Night Light, and grayscale if you only want darken things up a bit:
Settings / System / Display / Night Light
Settings / Personalization / Choose Your Mode (Dark)
Accessibility / Color Filters / Grayscale

But yes, also looking forward to a dark mode in PBI Desktop's UI that doesn't affect the color for visuals etc.

Please don't forget to also provide a folly working PBI Report Theme along with the UI Theme. Today we have the innovate Theme, but that is not folly working since the hovering background to the Headings menu is shown in light gray background towards white text-fronts

B

Please let us get the Dark Mode! Still waiting...

B

This needs to be implemented ASAP, being forced to work with a lamp to your face is not pleasant, give us the option of Light, Dark, Gray modes!

I have a visual impairment that makes light mode very difficult to use. It would be really nice to not have a headache and even blurrier vision at the end of every day because I've been squinting at a wall of white for 8 hours. Microsoft has generally really improved their accessibility tools; it's pretty disappointing to see that neglected for so long here.
