Hi @Nikhil_girish 

 

This is not directly possible using the available connectors in Power Automate. However you might want to give a try using the Ui Flows. You can record all the actions step by step and then make the flow repeat the actions. 

 

You might also want to try using Azure Automation Run Book and develop a PowerShell script for that. You can execute that from Power Automate using the Azure Automation connector. 

 

Hope this Helps!

i tried this with ui flows,but  for rdp if another screen appears asking for rdp credentials ,the recorder is not able to recognise the second screen. error [cannot identify the open application]

Hi @Nikhil_girish 

 

Yes. That is a limitation. You can probably give a try with Azure Automation Runbooks in that case.

Is there a solution with Windows Automate Desktop to be able to recognize RDP windows? I am reading things about Computer Vision but I cant find anything specific to solve the problem.
