Re: downgrade version

@MP_123 once you've updated power bi desktop you can't go back to the previous version.

Re: downgrade version

@ankitpatira Are you sure about this? I've seen many threads where people have reverted back by downloading the previous version. I can understand maybe if you create a report in the new version it may have some elements not compatible with the old one and break like OP said. I can test this out, but I'm in the middle of building an infographic that is taking a really long time and don't want to break it Smiley Happy

@ankitpatira Your downloads folder on your local machine, or wherever you placed the packages when you downloaded them initially.

Re: downgrade version

@Seth_C_Bauer thank you, yes if you've saved previous installs then you have ability to reinstall previous version. I was more referrign to the way you can roll back if you don't have previous installer saved.

The official download link only provides the latest version Power BI Desktop. So you can't downgrade unless you save the previous version installers.
