    Hey guys, new to the forum. Running Windows 10 Pro Version 1703 BUILD 15063.540 and the newest build of Office 2016 Pro version 1707 Build 8236.2058. I did the above and changed the reg key to 4 and locked it to read only. Now I'm stuck on colorful, even if I change the theme in the app. I think M$ removed the black theme from non-365 builds. Does anyone have any ideas or more information as I'm bumping this thread from back in April it seems, lol. It's crazy as we pay for Office and then cant use certain features as we're not dumb enough to spend $100 per year for life and instead buy the retail version, lol? Thanks again...
    I'm on the Insider Preview of Office 365 ProPlus 8326.2070, which is the conservative version; there are others who are further out there on the cutting edge.

    I have Colorful, Dark Gray, Black and White. I've checked them all and they work. For myself, I use colorful.

    Dumb question, but have you checked for updates lately?

    They aren't using 365 though - that was their point.

    OK, I see where I messed up:

    The bolded red statement "newest build" makes me think the OP is speaking to Office 365 2016 Preview. I missed the second statement that clarifies (more or less) that he obviously has the standalone version of Office.

    My office just updated. I am on Pro Plus version 1707 build 8326.2070. Still no black. You'd think they'd add the option to honour if its white/black system theme.

    Wow, finally got one to "take"!

    This is from my Office ProPlus Version 1707 (Build 8326.2070 Click to Run) I've tried all options and each one has worked just fine.

    I don't understand why others aren't getting the options I'm getting.

    Channel? I don't understand, but I'd think that if we both have the same exact version, we should have the same options?

    I hate to appear so dumb, Doug, but what you're showing me is the "standalone" retail version? It's not a subscription?

    I'm an Office 365 Insider, which is why I have a version so far ahead, I think. Swarfega is probably an Office Insider too, since our versions match.

Hi there 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....
