hi @Bhagyashree_S

Welcome Back!

So there’s an option while making the selection of using hoverable element selection that could be used by pressing the F6 key.

Using that you should be able to make the selection.
A combination of f6 and then f2 should be able to get you the desired selection.


Happy Automation! :smiley:

Hi ,

I tried using click activity and after that I clicked on f6 n then clicking on indicate element inside window.but it’s getting disappeared.

If i use recording it’s not showing the value which I am searching in search box


Can you please show a screenshot

If its like a drop down…try with right click or inspect the element and keep it open


No it’s no the drop-down button.its just a search box where we search for some application n need to click on that app name…but clicking on app is not happening it’s disappreaing


I understand its not a dropdown…its more like a dropdown…but cna you sahre a screenshot…did you try right click once it appears

or would keystrokes work?


Yes even if i use keystroke i am unable to indicate that perticular page …it goes
