How to hide the console of the ChromeDriver in python

0 votes

I'm currently using the chrome driver in Selenium to open chrome, log into the router, perform actions like clicking the buttons, upload configuration, etc. 

Here is the part of the code:

chrome_options = webdriver.ChromeOptions()
prefs = {"download.default_directory":  self.user_local}
chrome_options.add_experimental_option("prefs", prefs)
chrome_options.experimental_options.
driver = webdriver.Chrome("chromedriver.exe", chrome_options=chrome_options)
driver.set_window_position(0, 0)
driver.set_window_size(0, 0)

return driver

When I try to fire up my application, I get a chromedriver.exe console window followed by a chrome window opened and all the executions are done.

My question here is, is there a way to hide that ChromeDriver.exe console window using Python? As you can see I've also re-sized the window and my preference would be doing things in a way the user won't notice anything happening on screen
