driver.getWindowHandles() returns an unordered list.

Hello, driver.getWindowHandles() returns an unordered list. If I want to switch to a particular window based on its index(i.e, index = 0) , it is pointing to parent window(which is wrong window). It is supposed to a switch to first child window. I am facing this issue in IE Browser only. Can someone help me in finding solution for this issue.   Regards, Ramya

    Hi Ramya,

    You can try this code.


    WebDriver driver = new  FirefoxDriver();
    String parentHandle = driver.getWindowHandle();   //get parent window handle
    Set<String> windowHandles = driver.getWindowHandles();  // get all window handles
    for(String window : windowHandles){
    if(driver.getTitle().equals(“your title”)){   // iterate this set untill you find your window
    // perform operation
