Flows cannot be edited or ran after initial creation

I've recently installed Power Automate Desktop (Preview) and wanted to test it with my personal account. I created a flow and after a couple of hours it ran exactly as desired. I saved the flow. 

 

As soon as I closed the development tab, i could no longer access the flow. The options to run or edit are grayed out in power automate desktop. When trying to navigate power automate desktop from the dashboard, it allows me to launch the PAD program on my computer but it does not show my created flows in the online dashboard. This may be due to security settings; but it's preferred to not amend these. 

 

I'm thus unable to run or edit the flow i've created as all options are grayed out (altho Power Automate Desktop does show they exist.) https://imgur.com/el0ma8U

What do you mean with "personal account"? A personal Microsoft account (live.com)? Then there might be an issue with OneDrive.

Otherwise, there might be a database and/or license issue:

@fraenK Yes I mean a personal Microsoft account. Upon checking my one drive I do find newly uploaded files under Apps -> PAD for windows; but these are not executable in any way.

Please check that OneDrive is working properly and that you're using the latest version of Power Automate Desktop which is 2.6.48.21069

I can access, run and edit the flows again. 

 

I assume logging into onedrive was sufficient to fix the issue. I was already running the latest version of PAD and did not do any updates here. I also did not change any settings in one drive; but I admittedly hadn't manually logged into one drive in a long time either. 

 

Thank you!

I had exactly the same problem with Flows not appearing or if they did, editing was greyed out.

 

Turning on and letting OneDrive sync brought everything back.

 

You'd think someone might highlight that OneDrive is needed as I have never used it in the past and it wasn't an obvious solution.

 

But thank you for the selected solution as it worked.
