This is the code

package FirstPackage;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class FirstSeleniumProject {

public static void main(String[] args) {

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "C:\\Users\\KSaraswathiChowdary\\Downloads\\chromedriver_win32.exe");

WebDriver driver = new ChromeDriver();

I am unable to paste the Screenshot here. Below are the error logs in Console

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: The driver executable does not exist: C:\Users\KSaraswathiChowdary\Documents\softwares\chromedriver_win32.exe

at com.google.common.base.Preconditions.checkState(Preconditions.java:585)

at org.openqa.selenium.remote.service.DriverService.checkExecutable(DriverService.java:146)

at org.openqa.selenium.remote.service.DriverService.findExecutable(DriverService.java:141)

at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriverService.access$000(ChromeDriverService.java:35)

at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriverService$Builder.findDefaultExecutable(ChromeDriverService.java:159)

at org.openqa.selenium.remote.service.DriverService$Builder.build(DriverService.java:355)

at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriverService.createDefaultService(ChromeDriverService.java:94)

at org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver.<init>(ChromeDriver.java:123)

at FirstPackage.FirstSeleniumProject.main(FirstSeleniumProject.java:13)

I think this error is occurring either because of the wrong chromedriver path or because of the corrupt chromedriver.exe file. Try deleting the chromedriver.exe file and downloading it again. And then copy the path properly and use this path in System.setProperty() method.
