This issue is regarding maximizing the Internet Explorer window when running from Orchestrator.
Before going in to the issue, I would like to mention that I have gone through some posts in the forum and tried all those but nothing worked for me.
When trying to maximize the Internet Explorer window, “Maximize Window” is not actually maximizing the window, the application window is confined to only some part of the screen but not the complete screen.
I used a “Take Screenshot” activity and found out that, when ran from Orchestrator, the maximize operation is actually getting triggered, but not doing its job. I could definitely say the maximize was not happening because in the screenshot, I could see the “Restore” button on the top right, which would appear only if the window was maximized.
This is happening when the robot is left to run unattended. After triggering from Orchestrator, I opened the machine in which the robot was actually running and I could see that, the moment I opened, the application window is spread on to the complete screen. So when left unattended, the application window (internet explorer) is being confined only to a small part of the screen. The “Maximize” does not error out, but it is not exactly doing what it is supposed to do. I also tried “Send Hotkey”, as mentioned in the UiPath Forum, but that also didn’t work. I tried using these activities inside an “Attach Window”/“Attach Browser”, but these also were of no use.
This is not being faced when the robot is run manually.
Also tried changing the resolution in Orchestrator, this too didn’t help.
This is causing a major hindrance to the further operations as there are many “Click Images” in the code. The web application doesn’t support any other activity so “Click Image” is the only option we are left with. Now that this maximize is not working, these clicks are failing and I’m not able to find an alternative for these clicks, so maximize is the only option for these clicks to happen. I’m afraid I cannot attach the screenshot as it contains sensitive information. Please help!
