Re: PowerApps Desktop - How to edit an app

Hi @Anonymous,


Do you want to edit your PowerApps app within PowerApps Studio for Windows (Desktop) or PowerApps Studio for Web?


If you want to edit your PowerApps app within PowerApps Studio for Windows (Desktop), I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.


Currently, if you edit an app within your PowerApps Studio Desktop, you would be redirected to the PowerApps Studio for Web to edit your app. You could consider edit your app within PowerApps Studio for Web. Please take a try with the following steps to edit your app:

  • Open your PowerApps Web Portal
  • Within left side menu, click "Apps".
  • Within right panel, click ellipsis icon (...) for the app you want to edit, and then click or tap Edit.7.JPG

@v-xida-msftThanks for your reply. So at this time still theres no way to edit powerapps in the desktop client? The desktop is only for testing?
