OUCH my eyes hurt.

In the newest update for Power BI the background for the entire report in Desktop is now white.  This is TERRIBLE for your eyes.  Is there a way to change the background of desktop workspace itself (NOT the report).  For example, the Home Tab background is white, same with the visualzations and fields pane.  EVERYTHING is white.  Make it stop.

A bit racist...


And no, you cannot change it at the moment. They claim to be adding a dark mode in the near future. Not sure why there cant just bea button that reverts back to old color sceme though...

There is nothing racist about this post. 

White backgrounds have been proven to damage eyes over time.  Microsoft should have provided an alternative background while deploying a forced a white background theme.
