Switch browser tab step

# What to use the Switch browser tab step for

This step serves a specific purpose. In case Axiom opens a fresh browser tab or window during its operation, you need to direct the bot to switch to the new tab. It is important to note that the bot can only function in one tab at a time and lacks the ability to switch tabs on its own. If the bot is active in the wrong tab, you might encounter an error, such as 'click not found,' and no interaction will occur in the targeted tab. To automate tasks across multiple tabs, you can combine this step with the Close tab step.

You can use this step to:

  • Switch form one tab to a pop up that is a new tab
  • Jump betwen new tabs opened during a bot run

Some websites add '_blank' to their links, forcing a page to open a new tab, so keep an eye out for new tabs opening when testing your bot.
