Did you find solution ? I’m facing same issue

I don’t know if it will useful for you but in alternatives,

First alternative use Invoke Power Shell

1 - Add the WhatsUP path File .exe to a String
2- Add String to the Invoke Power Shell
3- This will open any app :slight_smile:
Or Just add the path to Invoke Power Shell


Second alternative use Send hotkey:

1 - Windows + r
2 - Type WhatsUP Location File
3 - Enter

Thank you, I tried and it is not working

I get the same problem. Only WhatsApp browser that works for me.
