Steps to reproduce

OS : Windows 7
Selenium : 3.4.0
Windows 10 build : 10240

Running Windows 10 as node on an other machine via selenium grid to run automated tests on edge browser.
Switch window functionality doesn’t work with windowHandles which is written in documentation. The test just pauses and fails at the switch statement

BTW, Switch window using handles doesn’t work even on a local test

    • Hi Rahul,

      Can you attach a webDriver repro for this?  Also, if you are using a local HTML file for testing include that.  If you are testing against a publicly assessable website, there is no need to include that.  This will allow me to verify the issue quickly.

      Thank you for the support,

    • Thank you Rahul.

      Fyi, I tested this on 15063 and the functionality is working.

      I am testing now on 10240 to verify my repo is correct, I.e. it should fail.
