Used to happen to me a lot in the old forum. Usually appeared after a while or someone checking and realising it was flagged by some overzealous algorithm. Just wait it out and if not -  I shall copy paste it in here quoting you ;-)

I found this link in another post by the OP of this one:
https://help.shopify.com/en/api/embedded-apps/app-extensions/shopify-admin/embed-in-shopify-admin

It gave me the info I needed to un-embed my app.

 

Thanks!

Haha!

 

Yes, I just did the same with my dev app and was about to post that it's as simple as 2 clicks incl. the save - no changes required to app. So yeah, guess that's why there isn't any specific documentation.

 

Though I must say I am not a huge fan of non-embedded apps as I think they are very distractive for the overall user experience.

I get that. But the app I’m working with involves multiple windows and is for live-streaming video. It would not be well-suited to fitting inside of an iframe. Thanks for looking into it!

You can manage whether your app is embedded or not by following the instructions found here:

I am unable to switch my app to a non embedded app following the guide : https://help.shopify.com/en/api/embedded-apps/app-extensions/shopify-admin/embed-in-shopify-admin

 

My app firsts opens in an external window and then once it loaded it redirects back to Shopify.

If anyone knows how to fix this please let me know!

 

I only want to temporarily switch my app to being a non-embedded app in order to be able to debug my app during development.

This is not accurate, a public app can be configured to be embedded or not embedded

 

From your Shopify Partner's account go to: 

 

Apps -> Extensions -> Embedded app -> Click on Manage embedded app

 

And here you can configure your public app to be embedded or not (Enable/disable embedded app)
