1. In the ribbon at the top of the screen, click File, then click Account at the bottom of the File menu.
2. In the Office Theme dropdown, choose Dark Gray or Black.
3. Click the Back arrow at the top left of the screen.
You should now see that Excel has a dark interface, but the spreadsheet itself — the cells in the main part of the page — is still white. If you want the cells to be dark as well, next you need to set the background to a dark color.
1. In the ribbon at the top of the screen, click Page Layout, then click Background.
2. In the Insert Pictures dialog box, click the Search Bing search box.
3. Type "solid gray" or "solid black," depending upon how dark you want the background to be, and then press Enter.
4. Select a background image and then click Insert.

If the background or text color isn't exactly what you're looking for, you can try again until you find the right combination.
