I am using the 'Open Program/File' action to launch a website. One webpage is already open in the chrome, and I want to launch a new one in the same tab. I have entered the path of chrome.exe in the Location field and the URL in the Parameters field. What parameter should I add to launch the URL in the the same chrome tab?

Hi @Rashmi.B2 ,

 

Through the approach which you're trying now, you will be able to open the link only on a new tab in Chrome but not on the existing one.

 

If you need to achieve this, you can either use the Browser → Open action and choose the Existing Tab option within it or can use Java Script.
