Close tab activity not working after Edge Browser update


We are facing issues with the process in production after the Edge Browser update.

The “close tab” activity is not working with selectors where the title is not specified or is given as an asterisk (*).

The activity is not throwing an error but, the browser tab is not being closed.

Edge Browser Version: 115.0.1901.203 (Official build) (64-bit)
UiPath.UIAutomation.Activities: 20.10.8
Studio version: 2020.10.2

Share your suggestion, please.


Well, a suggestion you might not be really waiting for, is to upgrade.

  • your studio is a wee bit old
  • your UI packages can use an upgrade
  • this might also affect the Edge Plugin to be outdated.

Upgrading, especially on on-premise landscapes are not always fun, but as your software evolves (Edge in this case) sometimes the robot must follow…

Yes, we are aware of these issues and are working on upgrading to the latest version in the coming days.

Thanks for the suggestion! :slight_smile:
