In this article, I am going to explain configuring the Internet Explorer Browser for executing Test Automation scripts on this browser using Katalon Studio.

Let’s get started.

4) Also, verify that the Zoom level of Internet Explorer Browser is set to 100% as shown below:

5) If your Internet Explorer Browser version is 11, we need to set a registry entry on the target computer, so that the driver can maintain a connection to the instance of Internet Explorer it creates. Follow the below steps:

6)  Type ‘regedit’ into the ‘Command Prompt’ and execute it to open the Registry Editor as shown below:

7) Observe that the ‘Registry Editor’ window is displayed as shown below:
