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!

Hello PowerBI team. Fantastic product, if it wasn't for the lack of a dark mode. I seriously do not understand why such basic functionality is not a core feature of your software.

Could you please, please, pleeeease(!) bump this feature request up on your to-do list and make life much easier and more pleasant for thousands of people?

Best regards

It's been THREE YEARS. Can somebody get on this already?

The current PowerBI theme is like throwing bleach into my eyes.

Please drop EVERYTHING you do and put the whole department on one single task: FIX DARK THEME.

Thanks.

Any updates here?

Can we get an update on this? This is really necessary for long days working in Power BI Desktop. More frequently Data Engineers, Data Architects, Data Warehouse Developers, BI Architects and other roles are going into Power BI Desktop. The transaction from Visual Studio for SSIS packages or Azure Tabular cube development and deployment in Dark Mode/Theme to Power BI reporting in the heavy white background is just painful. This is a top-tier end user consumption reporting tool and development tool. Please, please, please bring the Dark Interface capability back. This has to be priority #1 for the Microsoft Power BI Development team.

Hello Ideas Team do we have any update on this

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.

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!!!!
