How about “Active” activity or get activate window.

As @ddpadil rightly mentioned above you just need to use the Activate activity and indicate the same application which you want to be on foreground when open and minimized.

Hi @anusha,
This issue comes under Activation of Windows during execution.

  1. Attach the Window (Use proper concrete selectors)
  2. Activate the Window
  3. If possible, Click on some stable image or element (if possible) after activating.

Try the above and let me know.
