Use Application/Browser Properties

Hello Community, here Luis Fernando Pazos from Venezuela

Simple question about the Use Application/Browser activity… What is the Window Attach Mode property used for? could you provide a use case? I’m just curious

Thank you in advance for your attention.


That is a mode defines where inner activities search for their target elements.

There are two options:

Application instance: Inner activities search the indicated application instance, including all parent and child windows (alerts, popups, etc).

Single window: Inner activities search only the first window that matches the criteria specified in the activity.

The use case for each option depends on the specific automation scenario. For example, if you want to automate a web browser, you would typically use the Application instance option. This ensures that all activities in the workflow will interact with the same browser window, even if the user opens new windows or tabs.
To keep it simple it’s a mode to identify and interact with that specific browser window which is already opened and kept ready

The Single window option can be useful if you need to automate a specific window in an application, but you are not sure which window it will be. For example, if you are automating a customer service application, you might use the Single window option to search for the window that contains the customer chat widget.

I hope this helps

Cheers @Luis_Fernando

Thank you for providing clarity
