    Hi Team , 

    As far as I know, The Recorder can be connected to the already opened Browser instance , only by using Internet Explorer. 

    Are there any possibilities to get connect the recorder using chrome or Edge ? 


    I tried to change the preferred browser and updated the latest version. But still i could only connect to IE. Refer to attachment..

    Could you please help on this..

    Hi Nithya,

    Thank you for posting your query. 

    The option to attach the Test Studio recorder to a running application instance is only possible for IE (web applications) and WPF applications.

    This functionality is available in the above mentioned cases only because of the approach used to communicate with the different browsers. As Test Studio requires Chrome and Firefox to be started with specific arguments and parameters, it is not an option to attach the recorder to a running browser. In regards Edge browser - as of now this is only supported for execution. 

    Thank you for your understanding in advance,
