How to change Power BI Desktop UI back to dark mode?

Hi Power BI Community,

 

My Power BI Desktop UI's color switch to light/white recently and I can't seem to find the option to switch it back to dark mode. Does anyone know how to?

 

Thanks,

-James

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I'm not aware of any hack to change to dark mode. Fortunately Microsoft has announced that the recent ribbon changes enables them to do the following in a future update: 

 

Add the black and dark grey Office themes to Power BI Desktop

 

See the November update video for more info.

 

Kind regards

Thanks @v-lili6-msft ,

 

I updated Power BI Desktop and it didn't work, thought it would replace the old file.

 

When I went to uninstall Power BI, there were two files to uninstall. I uninstalled both of them and re-downloaded/re-installed the app.

 

Everything is good now.

 

Thanks,

-James
