Publishing your reports to the Power BI service is fast and easy.

Once you've completed authoring your report in Power BI Desktop, just select the Publish button on the Home tab in Power BI Desktop, and the process begins.

Your report and data, including visualizations, queries, and custom measures, are packaged together and uploaded to the Power BI service.

NOTE: It's common to refer to Power BI Desktop reports as .pbix files, which is the extension they're given in Windows.

Once the upload is complete, a dialog box tells you the publishing process succeeded and a link is provided in that dialog to take you directly to your report in the Power BI service, in a web browser.

And that's it - it's easy to publish reports from Power BI Desktop to the Power BI service.
