Object cloning restores windows HELP

I was using object cloning to do some tasks in internet explorer. I added the commands and cloned the actions on a maximized screen. I selected the corresponding window from the drop down list to capture the object and the command worked just fine. I then changed the window name to a variable, and although the bot does work, it started to restore (not maximized) the window. This happens with every object cloning command I add. I tried using the maximize window command after the first object cloning but the next object cloning command will restore the window again. I will probably end up writing a new bot from scratch but I'm hoping I can find another solution. Any help would be appreciated.


  • There is XML to add to the AA settings to prevent this that I am currently looking for as well
