Automation in windows 10 not working



Hi There,
I am new to UiPath and trying to learn how things works. I am using it on Windows 10 and the studio is started under Admin permissions.
When I am trying to run the screen recording using Desktop or Basic mode I am not able to select from start menu or desktop.
Also I have tried to run the Calculator sample. It open the calculator app but it is not able to press any buttons.
Also I have tried to use the UiExplorer to find out the selectors not able to identify the selectors for Windows 10 applications (Calculator, Explorer, One Note etc)
How ever I was able to use the selector in a chrome window and extract the text from there.

Any Help how can I workaround this issue ?


Might still be this


Switching to 2018.1 might help.


Hi @vvaidya

I have downloaded the latest version 2018.1.1 and its not working (screen recording) I have used the data scraping with Chrome and its Extension it works fine.
Is there any solution for Windows 10 / metro apps ?
Also there are no selectors for Edge browser.



It’s been while (more than four months) since answer of this post’s question is No.

Even today, with version v2018.2 (community edition), I am facing the same issue.

Does that mean issue with Windows 10 metro apps hasn’t been resolved yet?
