I want to create an automation script that opens a webpage and opens a new tab in the same browser window. Can anyone please suggest how this can be done in Selenium Webdriver?

Hi Mugdha, you can use following code snippet to open a new tab in current browser and switch between the tabs:

import java.util.Set;

import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;

import org.openqa.selenium.By;

import org.openqa.selenium.Keys;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.firefox.FirefoxDriver;

public class NewTabBrowser {

public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {

// TODO Auto-generated method stub


WebDriver driver= new FirefoxDriver();

driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(3000, TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS);


    driver.findElement(By.tagName("body")).sendKeys(Keys.CONTROL + "t");

    Set <String> windowHandles = driver.getWindowHandles();


    for(String winHandle : driver.getWindowHandles()){
