Can't Click Quick Measures OK Button

I have observed an issue with Quick Measures for some users.  Specifially today

  • March 2018 version of Desktop
  • screen resolution 2560 x 1440
  • Windows Task Bar set so it doesn't auto hide

When Adding a quick measure, the OK button is hidden behind the task bar.

Hi @MattAllington,


It's hard to reproduce. The possible cause could be the high scale value. If you can provide more info, I will test more. Maybe you can submit a support ticket here.

I had the same issue. Quite frustrating. There needs to be a scalable element to the quick measure window or at very least a keyboard shortcut for 'OK'/'Cancel'. The work around that I have used is to relocate my toolbar to the left of the window (right click on toolbar and select settings and follow the prompts to change toolbar location) which then allows for the OK button to be accessed . FYI  I only get this issue when working on my laptop screen. If i have my laptop through a monitor it functions OK.

Hello, has this been resolved? I am not able to press the Ok button in quick measures

After reading the comments, the only way I was able to press the Ok button was to move the toolbar to the left of my screen.

This is a rather annoying bug, as I am not able to move the toolbar of my (company issued and restricted) laptop.

OK button missing in quick measures

Please prioritize this fix, it will save users a ton of time.


My understanding, with the passage of time, is that this is caused by changes in screen resolution.  Power BI does not react well to "on the fly" changes to screen resolution.  This can happen when you change your PC resolution, but also when you change from a laptop to external monitor.  I think you will find a reboot will fix it.  


Still annoying though.  My advice - learn DAX and don't use quick measures 🙂
