how do I export projects from project landing page

New Contributor


I could not see the export option on available on landing page of Project online it only shows web/online version of project file, is there any chance or way we can retrieve all tasks under the web/online version of project and export or import to Project Desktop?

please see attached image for your reference


Many thanks

Hello @erkindunya ,

Projects created in Project for the web-  those that appear as "Project" in the Type column can't be exported / opened in Project Desktop. What's the reason for wanting to open in Project Desktop? See if there is already an idea here: / raise a new suggestion for it.
