Edge and chrome settings elements not identified

Post by kavya13 » Thu Jan 28, 2021 10:00 am

Hello Team,

I am trying to automate edge and chrome settings elements but the elements are not identified. Not able to spy inner text / buttons in Developer Tools page (edge://settings/)(chrome://settings/). I am using ranorex version 9.3.2, and I added the ranorex automation extension in edge and chrome but not able to identify the settings elements.

Attaching screenshot for reference.

When you browse Edge from Ranorex Spy can you see the Form AND the DOM? If you can only see the Form then the connection to the Ranorex Extension is non-operational. And it's an ENORMOUS PITA to get it to work. Waggle your left leg on a sunny day and maybe you'll get lucky kind of PITA, in my experience. Have you logged into the Chrome store on the browser? That appears to be utterly essential for us.
