    The Ranorex Studio user interface

    Let’s take a quick look at the different elements of the Ranorex Studio user interface.

    Test suite view
    The test suite is where you build and control your tests. Your test suite already comes with a simple test case that contains three recording modules: StartAUT starts the Demo Application, Recording1 will contain the test actions we’ll record in the next chapter, and CloseAUT closes the Demo Application.

    Click the tab Recording1.rxrec to switch to the recording module view.
