Hi @Piyush, Get Full Text and Get Visible Text activity both are used for text automation in UiPath studio. But the difference between the two is that Get Full Text activity extracts a string and its information from an indicated UI element using the FullText screen scraping method. This activity can also be automatically generated when performing screen scraping, along with a container. 

While Get Visible Text activity extracts not only a string and its information from an indicated UI element using the Native screen scraping method, but also the screen coordinates of each word found in the indicated UI element. This field supports only TextInfo variables. This activity can also be automatically generated when performing screen scraping, along with a container.
