  • Hi,

    You can record tests for the needed actions. In case of clicking a Start Menu item or double-clicking a desktop shortcut, there is no need to record and play back these actions. TestComplete uses a more reliable way: the corresponding application is automatically added to the TestedApps collection of your project and can be run with the Run method (as it is recorded).

    If you need some additional help, please clarify your task.

  • Hi,

    You can just record a test by performing the needed actions. Do you have problems when playing back the recorded test?
