Objects for "Applications" under "Windows accessories" list.

Hi team,

I need to get the objects for "applications" available under "Windows accessories" List.

Start -> Windows accessories -> Applications(objects needed for different applications available).

By using object spy method -  I am not able to get the  objects for Windows accessories option & also for applications available in the list. 

Kindly anyone Please help me (OR) suggest any method to get objects for my case. 


Thanks in advance team.

      Hi vinniew 

      Thanks for your response.

      Yes - I am launching an application like:

      Start  -> Windows accessories -> Snipping tool(I need to open the snipping tool application).

      Like shown above - I need to follow the steps and have to launch the application.

      By using Point and Fix method - It is not detecting the "Windows accessories" option.


      Could you please suggest any alternate way to get objects - It would be very helpful for me.


      Thanks in advance

        Hi bshiva8500 


        Ok now i understand. 


        When you say "get objects" thats why I suggested point and fix. 

        Now that I understand your issue here is how you solve it. 


        In your project you can add the repository "TestedApps" 


        This is mentioned in the documentation I have provided in my previous thread. 


        Rightclick>add new>select .net application and add the snippingtool.exe


        This will allow you to launch the snipping tool as tested application directly from TestComplete


        This will solve your issue, give it a try and let me know 🙂
