Can't locate the RUN button in Alteryx

8 - Asteroid



I am unable to locate the Run button on Alteryx Designer. I followed the instructions provided within this post How to Resolve display issues in Designer - Alteryx Community but I haven't been able to fix the problem. I am using Alteryx Non-Admin Designer Version 2021.3.1.47945. Attached is a screenshot of what my interface looks like right now.




Any help would be much appreciated! 🙂


@Jack6627 im sorry you are running into this issue! The cause is a known issue with Designer windows set as tabbed documents - in the screenshot I can see that you have the Results window tabbed.


To resolve:

  1. Close the Results window tab - I would recommend docking it in a different location. You can right-click the tab and select from one of the options.
  2. Restart Designer. You should now see the run button.

Alternatively, you can restore Designer to its default settings by going to Options -> User Settings -> Restore Default Settings.

Unfortunately, this means you cannot continue to have the windows docked - I personally have the Interface Designer always docked for me, so I understand your pain!


This will be resolved in a future release. If you wish to keep your tab, an alternate would be to use the Ctrl + R shortcut to run a workflow.
