Hi @AdhamFH ,

 

Currently, to manage data sources of an app, you have to be in design mode of PowerApps. You cannot change the data source information while playing the app.

Unfortunately, PowerApps does not have the ability to use File Explorer.  You must connect to the datasource while building the app.  This means it is not possible to simply browse to the datasource and update without first defining it in Studio Mode.
