How do we know to which chrome tab Kantu is connected?


#1

Hello!

I believe Kantu is connected to a specific tab in the Chrome browser. For example, let say there are 2 Chrome windows open, Window1 and Window 2. Each window has 3 tabs open. When I run Kantu marco, sometimes the macro is run in Window1, sometimes Window2.

How do we know to which chrome tab Kantu is connected? And what happens when the linked tab is closed?

Thank you!

How do we know to which chrome tab Kantu is connected?

You can see its title in the kantu for chrome title bar:

And what happens when the linked tab is closed?

Since V3.7.2, Kantu will continue the macro in the then active tab

In your case it sounds like the solution is to use different browser profiles. This helps keeping the two different Chrome windows separate.

Thank you so much for the information. I think your suggestion will help me solve the trouble I have :slight_smile:

I think this also explains the reason why user gets “Error #101: Kantu is not connected to a browser tab”. So far, I experienced Error #101 in 2 situations:

  1. When Kantu Macro was played at Chrome new tab page. (No URL entered yet)
  2. When the user separates the connected tab to a new window, then the window is closed.

Thank you for the clarification @admin

Have a good day!
