Windows 10: Office 2016 - Latest update - Black Theme now Gone
Meanwhile I'm going to use the Media Creation Tool to install Windows 10 RTM.
Dude, rather than continue to hijack Jimbo's Thread, let's go over here to discuss it.

Sorrry 'bout dat, Jimbo. I really didn't mean to hijack your thread.
I have just registered to write this comment.
I had same problem too. Mine working fine after update. however when i accidentally changed theme to white, i couldn't revert it back to black theme. Black theme option were just gone like u mentioned.
Solution i found is: i checked system restore point and saw that system restore point (critical update) were created only for office update. So after i have done system restore and reverted it back to previous office version, my black theme came back!
After u have restored office black theme, before another update comes, make sure log in to office and choose black theme. Then u might able to preserve black theme even after update.
Personally i haven't updated office yet. i have just system restore about 5 minutes ago
Hope this helps.
Signed in v.....2017 only three colors here too.
If you want black theme then personalize your desktop background to high contrast using something that gets your colors to where you want them. Works here and it is black black for office 2016
I have build 16.0.7167.2040 and do not have Black as an option. I only have Colorful, Dark Gray and White. If I change:
UI Theme value to 4
It makes office black until I close and reopen it, at which time it reverts to Colorful. So...
1) Does anyone have this build and the Black option normally?
2) If it has been removed in this build, is it possible to make this reg key stick?
I have the same build and it still has black.
I uninstalled and reinstalled mine. Still no Black. Any thoughts on how to resolve?
Do you have YOUR installer for proplus I can try? I am running proplus in the aforementioned build on 5 PCs and none of them have the Black option. They are all from the same installer too...

YMMV but I'm not so sure about this one --it has a certain charm and probably will be liked by younger users on these boards -- however it's worth a look.
After latest Office 2016 update there's the BLACK Theme . I don't have Office...
This was a pretty odd thing especially considering the effect. In the normal Startup or on the task-bar the icons for each program are where I put them and look and work normally.
However, on my desktop itself, they only show up as white squares....
