Opening Report in Desktop

How am I able to open a report in Desktop that was shared with me in Power BI Service? I prefer to use Desktop because of it's enhanced features, but when I am viewing the shared report in Service, there is no option to save it so that I can then open in Desktop. Thanks!

Correct.  Without Edit (or Admin) permission, you can only view in Power BI Service.

You'll need Edit permission in a Workspace to export a PBIX for a report.  Either you have to be an Admin in the Workspace, or the Workspace configured to all Members to edit.

Thanks @jeffshieldsdev So does that mean that I am not able to open and view a shared report using Desktop? Are you only able to view shared reports in Service?
