How to find the Desktop Window Name

I am trying to use the Export-PBIDesktopToCSV from a local Powershell to a local Power BI desktop instance. my pbix file name is TaskTimeReport.pbix. when I put in TaskTimeReport or TaskTimeReport.pbix into the parameters for the powershell command I get a not PBIDesktop window that matches error. 

 

I must be missing something. 

Has anyone gotten this to work?

I figured it out. 

You must have the powerbi desktop app open with the project you want data from. 

 

then use Get-PBIDesktopTCPPort to get the window name.
