The Edge extension can only be installed on Windows 10 versions 1803 and above.
This issue appears after you install the Edge extension for a different user on the same machine, after it has been initially installed for another user. In this case, it is recommended to reinstall the Edge extension.
On Windows logon, the Edge browser automatically starts as a background process. The extensions page is also loaded in the background, but is closed after several seconds. However, the extensions page is not reloaded when Edge is booted up, making extensions unusable.
There are two methods to deal with this situation:
- Restart the Edge browser.
- Set a default browser other than Edge.
Selectors which contain the
htmlWindowName attribute can not be validated. This is caused by a Windows known issue.
If your process uses local web pages (files stored on the local machine) in Edge, selectors are not generated for any element on those pages. This is caused by a Windows known issue.
In particular cases, the Type Into, Type Secure Text, and Send Hotkey activities erroneously interact with their target elements. To prevent this, you need to enable the ClickBeforeTyping property.
As a general rule for browser automations, it is also recommended to enable the SimulateClick property for activities which perform click operations.
