  • Basic – Generates a full selector for each activity and no container. The resulted automation is slower than one that uses containers and is suitable for single activities.
  • Desktop – Suitable for all types of desktop apps and multiple actions. It is faster than the Basic recorder, and generates a container (with the selector of the top-level window) in which activities are enclosed, and partial selectors for each activity.
  • Web – Designed for recording in web apps and browsers, generates containers and uses the Simulate Type/Click input method by default.

What type of selector does Webrecording use? Full or partial selector?

Attach browser and open browser will have the full selector while the inner activities will have the partial selector
