OpenBrowser without elevation

Post by AslamHud » Tue Jul 09, 2019 10:27 am


Is there a way to execute the OpenBrowser action without elevation?

Since it has become possible to now run applications without elevation, I feel that it should also be possible when opening a browser.
But since there is no flag present letting me do this, I'd like to know if there is another way of achieving the outcome.

Thank you in advance!

Hi AslamHud,

The browser will be launched with the same rights as the application launching it (your test). If you are running your test with administrative privileges (a best practice in most cases), the browser will also run with administrative privileges. Unfortunately, this behavior cannot be changed with the open browser action at this time. I recommend creating a new feature request on our User Voice platform as I can see this being a useful feature in certain environments. It means more when the request comes from you directly than from me.
