Latest Version of PBI Desktop Wrought with Bugs

Apparently, no one QAs product releases at Microsoft anymore. I installed the latest version of PBI Desktop and reports that have always functioned properly now experience fatal issues regarding memory consumption or produce strange exceptions. Plus, PBI Desktop continues to run in the background after closing the app, which the latest release did not address.



  1. Moving page tabs causes a very strange behavior
  2. Renaming a value in a table/matirx by simply double-clicking it and renaming it no longer works. It is renamed in the Field well but not on the table/matrix itself.


Please advise. Ugh.

@dharland ,


Does this issue always happen when you rename the field? Please try closing power bi and reopen it then check if this issue persists.
