Hi @suraj23 what exactly did you try?

I dont know if this would help you but, to do that I would first click at the path browser and then paste or write the full path. I mean clicking first here:

Then write the full path and open.

Hope it helps.


@suraj23 I think I understand what your problem is.

Try this: Put the full path of the FOLDER (not the file) in the search bar at the top of the Pop up and press enter. You’ll reach the folder your file is in. Then, use the file name and put it in the “File name:” field and click open.

Check this out and let me know if this resolves your problem.


  1. Don’t forget to assign values to the two created variables: 1 for folder path, another for filename.
  2. Check the selectors once.

Hey @suraj23

I do not know what is not working for you. Type into works perfectly fine.

it takes file so all files you are having in different Folders or what?

Make it clear.


@aksh1yadav my PDF file is in different- different folder so every time i have to go in different folder

@siddharth Code did not work on my system, IE problem
Please provide solution in Chrome

@suraj23 it’s pretty straight forward. Just follow the steps:

  1. Open browser
  2. Click on the icon representing the folder in the upper search bar.
  3. Use Type into and enter full path of the FOLDER with the enter key.
  4. Now, in the “filename:” field, enter your FILENAME with the enter key.

That’s it. Try it once, and if you still face issues, attach your workflow here.

Please refer this xaml @siddharth

@suraj23 don’t use chrome. Use IE instead as you’ll face compatibility issues with Chrome.

Hi @suraj23

Could you try a combination of Set Clipboard activity and Send Hotkey activity with CTRL+V, after the initial click?
That might solve the issue.
