I am trying to migrate my Automate Scripts from Windows XP to Windows 7.

In Windows 7 when the script tries to Launch the IE using Open Webpage function for some reason the IE is getting launched always minimizing into the task bar.

Whereas in Windows XP IE used to open and be ready to take the input.

Do I need to adjust any settings inorder to make the IE open without automatically minimizing it.

I would suggest you try adding a Maximize Window and Focus Window action. This will ensure the window is focused and ready to be used.

Let us know if that works for you.
