Dear Microsoft Team, I'm self-learning Power BI Desktop to develop my employment skills, but unfortunately I could not go further with my studies because I'm using the free license. Unfortunately, I don't hold an professional email address or school address. I lost my job during the COVID-19 lockdown and I'm using my spare time to develop my skills, and Power BI Desktop is one of them. Because I'm not working at the moment I don't have a professional email or a school email. I really would like to sign up as an individual and continue with my training. My Microsoft license is 2019. Could you please tell me if there is a way that I can sign up using my Gmail account? I look forward to hearing from you soon. Kind regards, Mariana

    I was watching this video on CURBAL and it provides clear instructions on how to create free office 365 accounts which also provide free Power BI pro licenses for the accounts created.

    Follow the link

    Once you have a pro license you can access most of the features in Power BI
