Power BI bookmarks are the same as your browser bookmarks. If you find something (report or dashboard) interesting, you can bookmark it in Power BI. With this, you can quickly access them.

In this article, we show you the step-by-step approach to adding reports and dashboards to Power BI favorites with a practical example. Before you start adding items to Favorites, let me show you the existing Favorites in my workspace.

To view them, click the Favorites tab in the Power BI left navigation pane. As you can see from the screenshot below, there are currently no favorites in my workspace.
