Question: How to Switch to another window in Selenium?


Answer:  The following is the answer for this question:

The following predefined methods of Selenium can be used for handling the multiple windows in an application:

  • getWindowHandle() – for retrieving the window ids of multiple opened windows
  •  getWindowHandles() – for retrieving the window id of the currently focused window.
  • switchTo() – helps us in switching
  •  window() – used along with switchTo() and intakes window id as input

Example program:  The following program will capture all the opened windows, switch to child window and close it and later switch to the main window and then close it.

//Store all the currently opened windows in a Set Collection

Set<String> set = driver.getWindowHandles();

Iterator<String> itr = set.iterator();

//Store the window ID of the main window

String mainWindow = itr.next();

//Store the window ID of the child window

String childWindow = itr.next();

//Switch to child window

driver.switchTo().window(childWindow);

//Close the child window

driver.close();

//Switch to main window

driver.switchTo().window(mainWindow)

//Close the main window

driver.close();
