Installing the Edge Extension

Note:

The Edge extension can only be installed on Windows 10 versions 1803 and above.

This extension helps you create browser automations in Edge. It can be installed from Studio, the Command Prompt, or from the Microsoft Store. Please note that Edge support is currently an experimental feature. If you encounter any issues, please consult the troubleshooting guide.

Before you develop automation projects in Edge, it's important to know that Microsoft is planning to make Edge a Chromium-based browser. As such, current automation projects in Edge are not going to be compatible with a Chromium-based Edge browser.

Note:

Your machine needs to be part of a domain to be able to install the Edge extension.

From UiPath Studio

  1. Access the Tools page from the Studio Backstage View. The extensions you can install become visible.
  2. Click the Edge button. A confirmation dialog box is displayed. The extension is now installed.

From the Command Prompt

  2. Right click on Command Prompt and run it as administrator.

If the computer is not part of a domain, the setup opens the Microsoft Store page to download and install the extension. In this case, simply follow these steps:
