I am trying to open a web browser and pass on credentials to login. Sometimes when the website is slow in loading, another tab opens up automatically in IE. This is causing my script to error out with the message - No windows matched the requested set of criteria

Could you please let me know if there is an option in automate so we can restrict the number of tabs to open up in IE?

Hello Poonam,

This setting would be an IE setting. You can try adding a 'wait for duration' step or  Wait for Window.
