Power BI Blog: Power BI Home in Desktop

11 January 2024

Welcome back to this week’s edition of the Power BI blog series.  This week, we look at the new Power BI Home in Desktop.


Power BI Home is a redesigned home to provide a familiar and centralised “home” for all your Power BI activities within the Power BI Desktop application.  Microsoft’s stated aim is to enhance productivity and make it easier to discover and consume content.

With Power BI Home, you no longer need to navigate through multiple menus or tabs to access your files and reports.  Therefore, this interface serves as a hub, similar to other Office products, where you can manage your reports, all from a single location.

This provides the capability to:

  • initiate a new report directly from the new home screen
  • access reports from recommendations that Power BI has curated
  • locate your most recent reports through the ‘Quick Access’ lists.

In the meantime, please remember we offer training in Power BI which you can find out more about here.  If you wish to catch up on past articles, you can find all of our past Power BI blogs here.
