Hello @Anony_mous,


You can open a remote desktop connection in Power Apps by using the "Launch" function and specifying the appropriate URL for the remote desktop protocol (RDP).


The URL for RDP is typically in the format of "rdp://[hostname or IP address]:[port]".


Here is an example of how to use the "Launch" function to open a remote desktop connection:

  1. Create a button on your Power Apps form.
  2. Set the OnSelect property of the button to the following formula:


Launch("rdp://[hostname or IP address]:[port]")


Note: You may need to modify the hostname or IP address and port to match your specific remote desktop connection.


This should open the remote desktop connection when the button is clicked. If you are unable to open the remote desktop connection, you may need to check the network configuration or firewall settings to ensure that the connection is allowed.
