Only for images, If I build an image from Podman Desktop, only then the images appear.

  3. Ran Podman (through the Podman Desktop UI - Home)
  4. Visited the Images tab and no images where available
  5. From the powershell the command podman image ls shows me 5 available images

Yes, Podman Desktop can detect if podman is installed on your system, otherwise provides you a guide to install all the prerequisites that podman requiers (hyper-v, wsl etc.) and then you are able to install podman, initialize the podman machine and use podman through Podman Desktop or through powershell with CLI.

I’ve got a question: If a system does not have Podman installed, will Podman Desktop installer install the Podman engine automatically?
