Hi,

I have replaced * instead of search string in the attach browser.

<html title='* - Google Search' />

Another possible solution is to add variable name in the selector.

"<html title='" & input_string & "* - Google Search' />"
Pass this as a string to the selector.

Please find the workflow, but I have modifed it for IE.

@Kaynat I have modified your workflow, instead of attaching browser after seach, use it after opening the google so you’re sure that the instance of that IE is on that attached browser, so even if the browser url change it still on that instance of attached browser.
