Install-Module Selenium


Import-Module "{FullPath}\selenium-powershell\Selenium.psd1"


Note: in order to use a specific driver you will need to have the brower of the driver installed on your system. For example if you use Start-SeChrome you will need to have either a Chrome or Chromium browser installed

Start a Browser Driver

# Start a driver for a browser of your choise (Chrome/Firefox/Edge/InternetExplorer)
# To start a Firefox Driver
$Driver = Start-SeFirefox 

# To start a Chrome Driver
$Driver = Start-SeChrome

# To start an Edge Driver
$Driver = Start-SeEdge

Navigate to a URL

$Driver = Start-SeFirefox 
Enter-SeUrl -Driver $Driver

Find an Element

$Driver = Start-SeFirefox 
Enter-SeUrl -Driver $Driver
$Element = Find-SeElement -Driver $Driver -Id "myControl"

Click on an Element/Button

$Driver = Start-SeFirefox 
Enter-SeUrl -Driver $Driver
$Element = Find-SeElement -Driver $Driver -Id "btnSend"
Invoke-SeClick -Element $Element

Send Keystrokes

$Driver = Start-SeFirefox 
Enter-SeUrl -Driver $Driver
$Element = Find-SeElement -Driver $Driver -Id "txtEmail"
Send-SeKeys -Element $Element -Keys ""

Run Chrome with options

# Run Chrome in Headless mode 
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -Headless

# Run Chrome in incognito mode
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -Incognito

# Run Chrome with alternative download folder
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -DefaultDownloadPath C:\Temp

# Run Chrome and go to a URL in one command
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -StartURL ''

# Run Chrome with multiple Arguments
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -Arguments @('Incognito','start-maximized')

# Run Chrome with an existing profile.
# The default profile paths are as follows:
# Windows: C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data
# Linux: /home/<username>/.config/google-chrome
# MacOS: /Users/<username>/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
$Driver = Start-SeChrome -ProfileDirectoryPath '/home/<username>/.config/google-chrome'

Find and Wait for an element

$Driver = Start-SeChrome
Enter-SeUrl '' -Driver $Driver

# Please note that with the -Wait parameter only one element can be returned at a time.
Find-SeElement -Driver $d -Wait -Timeout 10 -Css input[name='q'] 
Find-SeElement -Driver $d -Wait -Timeout 10 -Name q
