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.

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!

RE: Option to use either light or dark interface.

The new light mode on the latest update really makes it difficult to differentiate between the different panes. Can we please please please have the option to revert back to the original dark mode without having to re-install a previous version???

Please return the Dark UI. It was easier to read and much easier on the eyes when you spend hours looking at the same screen.

This was a dumb change. Everybody I talk to hates it. I don't even bring it up half the time.

I now have to advise my children not to look straight into the sun or Power BI Desktop.

Please add Dark Mode back into the Desktop version of Power BI, it sucks looking at it in light mode when I have every other app running in Dark Mode.

Please have the option of the an UI change to dark mode. It is very difficult to work with such a bright light burning my eyes. Especially when working with limited light in the room or office.
