@sudhansu075 Hi!  Just to confirm, are you using IEDriver?  


There is a known limitation with opening new windows when using IEDriver.  Please see this documentation for more information: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/webdriver-chromium/ie-mode?tabs=c-sharp#known-limita...





Thanks @Kelly_Y . Thanks for your reply.

This is about the pop up getting blocked by the browser when running in ie mode. I am not using any new window operation.
