Launch Function

When using the Launch Parameter as follows:

launch("") it always launching in a pop out window with very recuced functionality such as Maximising the window.

It there a way of adapting the launch command so that it launches in a new tab or a window with the full functionality?

Thanks in advance

Hi BenGillard, can you try this ?

they both work for me, they open a new tab in the current window with the full browser functionalities, also can I ask you which browser are you using ?

I'm using Google Chrome and it works like I said.

Re: Launch Function

I've also tried this in the web browser and mobile client.  Both open the web browser in a new tab/Window. Have you enabled/disabled any of the advanced or preview functionality in the app?

Re: Launch Function

Hi @Pstork1, these are my Active preview and beta functionalities, I mean, all these are Set On.

Note, I 've translated them by myself from italian, because even if my PC's main language setting is en-US, powerapps web and the W10 app still both work with italian language, for some reason....
