Not able to select activity in Internet Explorer

Hi All

I want to type something in a text box in Internet Explorer. I am using Type Into activity for the same. But while selecting the element the particular text box is not getting selected and the whole page is getting selected.

What do i need to do for this ? The page i am working on opens only in Internet Explorer. How do i select only that particular text box?

Hi @Shradha_Agarwal

Welcome to forum

Is there any appearing while trying to select any option in Internet explorer?


Welcome to forums

Check if Enhanced Protected Mode is ON from the settings, Go to Internet Options->Advanced->Scroll down and search for Enable Enhanced Protected Mode-> If it is Checked then uncheck and restart the browser

Below for your reference

Hope this helps you


Hi @Shradha_Agarwal,

Have you tried using another UI Framework (Spy mode), by pressing F4 button while in spy mode, have you maybe tried UIA?


No popup is appearing

Actually no i have not tried Spy yet

This is already off

Here at the right side a different div appears. There in Common Menu Name I need to type a value but when I try to indicate there it selects the whole page.
While i am trying to click on OK button at the botton right it selects whole page while indication but while running successfully clicks on that button.
Also when I click on any button from from left side then it points to that exact button only.
Please help
