Which Power BI live dataset is my desktop report using?

I have a report that is connected to a Power BI live dataset. When I go to Edit Queries -> Data source settings the "Select a dataset to create a report" window appears. What I do not see is any indication of the currently select dataset.

 

Can someone tell me how to identify which Power BI live dataset my desktop report is connected to?

 

Thank you!

@hyggins Soo. I started to write up a whole reply around how this seems really odd, and hacks to try to find it, then I gave one more look around and found that you can actually see this in the lower right hand corner of the Desktop.. I may just do a quick blog about this because that isn't at all intuitive based on where we find other connection info. Because you are right, it isn't anywhere we would normally look.

Oh. My. Goodness!!! Right there in front of me!!

 

Well, I guess it goes back to the old IBM story of knowing which screw to turn.

 

Thank you so much!
