Hi Guys,

I have been trying to automate certain set of repetitive tasks in an application which is installed in my desktop however runs only if internet is connected.

Now when I am trying to indicate individual elements on the application like File, Edit, View, New Document, etc. from the menu bar on the application, I am not being able to get the correct selectors as the entire menu bar is showing as one container. Below is the screenshot:

It should ideally recognize the individual options like New, Print, Search or menu like File, Edit, View, etc.

Please suggest what can be done.

Regards,

Kaustav Chakraborty

Hi @AshwinS2

Thanks for the prompt response.

I have tried passing Hotkeys, I tried image based automation approach, I tried Basic and Desktop recorders but all have the same issue. It is like as if there is a sheet laid above the application screen which Uipath is not being able to break through to interact with the application.

Kaustav.
