List of all Operations and Effective Elements of Selenium Automation Testing

All About Selenium

Selenium is an open-source automated testing suite used by developers for creating web applications across multiple browsers and platforms. Selenium focuses on automating web-based applications. Developers are like to perform testing with the assistance of the Selenium tool, which is typically called selenium testing.

You must understand that selenium is not a single tool but a suite of different software that we are using to cater to different testing needs of the enterprise. There are four key components of it:

Let’s learn about the WebElement operations of Selenium.

WebElement in Selenium

Anything available on the webpage is a WebElement, such as a button, scroller, text box, etc. We use WebElement for an HTML element. Selenium WebDriver represents a DOM element, and we create all the documents of HTML with the help of these HTML elements.


There are several techniques with which the WebDriver can detect the WebElement, which are dependent on unique properties, like ID, Name, XPath, Class, CSS Selectors, Tagname, link Test, etc.

Two main methods offered by WebDriver to find the webpage elements are:

1. FineElement(): We use it to find a single WebElement and return it as an Object of WebElement.

2. FindElements(): We use this to find elements in a specific location with the help of locators.

Types of Web Elements:

We can divide Selenium WebElement into eight types:

What operations are performed on the WebElement?

To access WebElement, developers need to complete a set of operations, starting with browser actions until the operations run on frames.

    • Navigate to specific web page

    • Close the current browser

    • Close every browser opened by WebDriver at the time of execution

    • Maximize browser

    • Refresh the browser

Let’s talk about the usage of a variety of tools and other things. Given below is the list of different elements that can be helpful in Selenium automation testing.

The Selenium automation testing is indeed the essential testing performed in any organization. Let's watch a tutorial on "How to write Script in Selenium Webdriver?" by Mukesh otwani.


There is always a question as to how things will get recorded in the Selenium IDE. So, follow the described steps and procedures and know the recorded script even better.

Here I also like to share a video on the process of recording script in selenium IDE by Helpfolder Channel
