How to detect open application running in the background?


Hi Guy’s,

I’m currently on a small project where in I needed to enter a string on an application but I’m having a problem if the application is already running. Does anyone know how to detect if an application is already open or already running in the background?

Thank you


Hi @jakezap,

There is a Get Processes activity. You can use that to loop through your processes. You can test with something like this.


Hi tmays,

Thank you for your response. I was able to work it out last night but i’m not able to post on this thread back. the solution I came in was similar to what you provided above. Thank you
