Hi Prashashti, to create a fixture that will be shared across several tests, you have to put it in the file conftest.py. Any fixture in it will be recognized automatically. A fixture that starts the web browser looks like this:

@pytest.fixture(scope="session")
def driver_get(request):
    from selenium import webdriver
    web_driver = webdriver.Chrome()
    session = request.node
    for item in session.items:
        cls = item.getparent(pytest.Class)
        setattr(cls.obj,"driver",web_driver)
    yield
    web_driver.close()

@pytest.fixture above driver_get() function indicates that this function will be used as a fixture with scope=session. The request parameter refers to the test session, as fixture functions can accept the request object to introspect the “requesting” test function, class, module or session, depending on the scope.
