Steps to reproduce

Issue: I’m not able to tab into another window. The issue only with Edge. On chrome and firefox code is working. Below is my code:

WebDriver driver= new EdgeDriver();

  1. With below code i was getting failed to focus on the element
    driver.findElement(By.cssSelector(“body”)).sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL + “t”);

  2. This gives no error but failed to open another tab. But works fine on Chrome
    Actions actions = new Actions(driver);;

    • WebDriver by design right now doesn’t support frame accelerators (commands handled by the chrome). Creating a new window has been floated by the working group for the WebDriver spec as being its own command.
