Use Application/Browser activity opens the same pdf file in loop (open file in folder))

The message box, displays new file name everytime, but pdf opened is always the same file. I’ve tried using both Adobe and other apps like Foxit reader, however issue continues to persist. Edited Selector to use wildcard instead of exact file name

Hi @goodtipsteam

Could you try with this settings?

Also you can change “Close” property to “never” to see if all files will opened for each interaction

If the issue persist, could you share some screenshot of your workflow?

Hi @goodtipsteam

Could you try below way:

Make sure Selectors is correct and wildcard is in the right place.

If the issue persists the your workflow screenshot and properties of Use Application/Browser proprties screenshot.
Hope it helps!!


Did you happen to give the filepath as variable? Or using a static file name?
