In the previous articles, I have explained – Navigating to URLs using Selenium C Sharp.

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate Maximizing the browser using the Selenium C Sharp API Command Manage(), Window and Maximize().

Let’s get started.

Selenium C# – Maximizing the Browser

In this article, I am going to practically demonstrate by providing the task first followed by solution.

Task: Open the Chrome browser using Selenium C#, which opens the Browser in resized mode.

Wait for 5 seconds using  Thread.Sleep() and then Maximize the browser using Manage(), Window and Maximize() Selenium C# API Commands.

Then navigate to http://omayo.blogspot.com URL using the previous explained Navigate().GoToURL()

Solution: Lets follow the below steps:

1) Launch Visual Studio and select an existing project which is already configured with Selenium and WebDriverManager as shown below:

Navigate URL - Launch Project

2) Write the WebDriverManager and ChromeDriver object creation statement as explained in the previous WebDriverManager post:

Navigate URL - ChromeDriver

3) Now let’s write the below Selenium code to navigate to http://omayo.blogspot.com/ as shown below:

Screenshot:

Navigate URL - Navigate

4) For demonstration purpose add the Thread.Sleep(5000) for halting the Automation code for 5 seconds after opening the chrome browser in the default resized mode as shown below:

Selenium C# - ThreadSleep

5) Let’s maximize the chrome browser page by adding driver.Manage().Window.Maximize()  to the code as shown below:

Selenium C# - Maximize Command

6)  Save and click on ‘Start’ button to execute the above code.

Observe that the Selenium C# Script will get executed and observe that the Chrome browser will be maximized after 5 seconds as shown below:
