Application and Window Handling

Find Application

The activity finds window in an application and takes over it. The activity allows you to define application's custom internal name for further use. This way there is no need to start a new instance by using Run Application activity.
Fill in the internal application name. Fill in the Windows Name textbox - it could be only the fragment of the document name, but must be unique among all opened documents. GUI Element is an optional identifier to distinguish between similar windows.
