Selenium

Setting up for Selenium

Install Selenium

  • Open Windows’ Command Prompt (cmd)
    • pip install selenium

WebDriver Directory

  • Create directory anywhere convenient to place ChromeDriver
  • Add the directory to your PATH

By adding a folder containing WebDriver’s binaries to PATH, Selenium will be able to locate the additional binaries (e.g. ChromeDriver) without requiring your test code to manually locate the driver’s location.
