Change Power BI interface theme to dark older one?

After the new update changed the Visualizations and Field box to more lighter color. It's really annoying for the eyes.  Is that any option to change to the older one or darker?


Please ask users before you make changes in the interface. Or take a class in color and design before you guys change interface.

I am definately not liking the white on white, very hard on the eyes. Ow ow ow, my head hurts and im seeing spots from my big monitor! Thanks for the "Feature"! Now can we turn it off pluheese?

At least it's easy to switch to the old versions.  Why companies take away functionality like this for no reason boggles my mind.

This is not currently an option in PBI. You can revert to an old version to change back at the current time.

You can also vote for this feature request to make it an option:

If you still have old downloads of PBI, you can uninstall the most recent version and install an older one.
