[Guide] Internet Explorer configuration for Web Automation through Robin

With Robin we can run Automation actions on all of the three major web browsers.
Note that if you want to use Internet Explorer to automate your web related tasks you will need to configure its security settings first.

For automating your web related tasks you can either use Robin’s automation browser or Chrome/FireFox/IE.
The latter choice is especially useful when you want the task to be performed through an IE browser window that is already open.

While you can use Robin’s automation browser without the need to configure anything, for being able to control IE you will need to modify some of its settings.
By default, Internet Explorer comes with security settings enabled that do not allow an external application (Robin in our case) to control it.

To change this, you must perform the following steps:

Open the Internet Options dialog in Internet Explorer and click on the “Security” tab:

Select the “Internet” zone and UNCHECK the “Enable Protected Mode” checkbox:

Select the “Local intranet” zone and UNCHECK the “Enable Protected Mode” checkbox:

Select the “Trusted Sites” zone and UNCHECK the “Enable Protected Mode” checkbox:

Finally click the OK button and restart Internet Explorer. You will now be able to control Internet Explorer through Robin for automating all kinds of web sites and web applications.

Best regards,
J.
