how to do double click and other essential UI functions

It says in the instructions for UI flows wth WinAutomation that thse are not supported:

so how the %^@#%%&$%& are we supposed to do them? especially double click which is, you know, an essential part of some programs actions.

  • Desktop UI Flows

    • Multiple monitors
    • Double click, mouse hover, touch/pen input
    • Interactions on Windows (File explorer, startup menu, task bar, etc.)
  • Web UI Flows

    • Right click.

Hello @Smila ,

 

As documented below, this is a known limitation with UI Flows and currently not supported.

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-automate/ui-flows/create-desktop#known-issues-and-solutions

 

UI Flows are evolving and I am optimistic that these program actions should soon be included in upcoming releases. Feel free to add an Idea on below forum:

I have the same need for advanced mouse functions.  Double-click, repetitive or rapid clicks (loops are too slow), mouse wheel and other buttons and for non-ui-elements, click-drag(select), click-drag(move+drop).

 

Without these, there are too many tasks which cannot be fully automated.

The same request was made a year before this one.  And now, 9 months later, no update on when the feature optimistically expected by https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/140067 Rohsh354 is still not included.

 

I would appreciate a more concrete reply that this is in the feature build and when it might be expected.

 

Thanks
