Run Flow in the Background

Hi all, i have set up a flow that opens chrome, extracts data and then closes chrome every 5mins. Is there any way where i can set this up to run in the background instead of having chrome pop up every 5mins? Any ideas will be much appreciated, thanks!

Hi @amoscbh , 

I dont believe this is possible with Power Automate for your purpose i.e interacting with a desktop application and interacting via mouse clicks and keystrokes. You can potentially run it on a server or another desktop but this probably doesnt solve your problem.
