Download the report into Power BI Desktop

Hi

 

I am new to Power BI and getting myself familar with. I was trying to download a report published to Power BI service and could not find a direct way to download within Power BI Desktop. It appears i need to download directly from the Power BI service and then edit it through desktop. I was not sure if downloading directly into the desktop option is available  ?

Hi @nmsivasankar,

 

The download option is only available from the web version.

 

From the desktop version you can do the upload only.
