Changing Window Titles

If you record a task with an application for which the window title changes frequently, use the Workbench commands for updating the task to refer to the proper title.

For instance, several scenarios can exist:

  1. The window title of a web page or a Windows application changes continuously due to dynamic content.
    • The title in Microsoft Outlook changes frequently as the user selects new folders.
    • A web page title contains a session ID for the website.
  2. If you copy a recorded task to create a new task, the application titles will need to be changed.
  3. When you use a wild card, the Current Active Window command, or variables to use for setting window titles.
Note: You can use the Windows filter to select a particular Window name, enabling you to view task actions that are sorted by application.This filter provides a convenient view of any or all applications that are used in your task.

How to use the Change Window Title action

  1. In the Workbench, use the Windows filter to select a particular Window name.
  2. Select one or more commands with the window title.
  3. Right-click on one of the selected windows commands and click Change Window Title.

    You can also use the Actions button to select the Change Window Title option.

  4. Set a common Window title for the selected windows that your want to change and click OK.

    The windows titles are changed to the new title that you've assigned.
