Hot Keys for running Power Automate Desktop Flows

Hi, any idea how to get a Power Automate Desktop to run from a Hot Key?


For example:

  • (preferred) use AutoHotKey and create a script to run xyz flow
  • if email received with certain criteria run xyz flow
  • other ideas?


Thanks in advance!

Right now there is no way to use email monitor trigger in power automate desktop. We need to use When an email received trigger in cloud flow and then call the desktop flow. For that a premium license is required. Powerapp per user plan with attended RPA. 

Hotkey trigger is also not supported.
