Use Application/Browser not using Google Chrome

Hello everyone!

I know for sure that the activity ‘Open Browser’ has the option to pick which browser you want to use. But I want to use the modern activity ‘Use Application/Browser’, but it always uses ‘Internet Explorer’ (IE) instead of ‘Google Chrome’ (GC). Probably because the server uses IE as default. Is there a way to choose GC over IE within ‘Use Application/Browser’?
Or do I have to use the other activity ‘Open Browser’ in chase i want to use GC?

Try the below steps:
1.Install the UiPath extensions for chrome.
2.Open the page which you want to automate in chrome window
3.Select the above chrome window as indicate the target in Use app/browser activity.
It will then open the page in chrome when you run the program
