Business value

When you use picture-in-picture execution mode, the flow run doesn't interfere with the user's work on the machine. Makers can run attended desktop flows in a virtual window that replicates the main desktop.

Feature details

Makers can trigger local attended desktop flows within an isolated Windows session in picture-in-picture mode. You can trigger a desktop flow in picture-in-picture mode through the Power Automate console. Select the target flow, open the More actions menu, and then select Run in picture-in-picture. Alternatively, enable the Run in picture-in-picture flow property so that the flow always runs in picture-in-picture mode when triggered locally.
