comment How do we create a “Test Incident” Report?
An incident may or may not represent a bug. Initially, it just requires investigation. A Defect/Bug report represents something that you believe is actually a bug. Note: some shops use the terms incident/defect/bug interchangeably. Most certification exams do not. You shop may have a local definition for the term "Test Incident".

comment How to find out which languages are supported by a website?
Ask your developers how the website/application determines the locale of the user. Ask them how they unit tested that feature. Then ask them the languages supported.

comment Should username/login ID be case-sensitive?
Case sensitivity adds more than a very thin layer to security. It expands the possible entries significantly, and consequently makes a brute-force attack more difficult.

comment Is there any automation tool to verify data with ms excel sheet?
What does "verify" mean here? Do you mean that the data in each row of the spreadsheet exists in the same format on the website, and you just need to compare the two? Or do you mean something else?

comment Which approach should be used for late tests in large projects?
What is the level of risk here if it's insufficiently tested and hence buggy? (You'll get a different answer if it's an internal application that will quickly go through several versions, versus it's a SaaS application that is the lifeblood of all of your safety-critical customers)

comment Which approach should be used for late tests in large projects?
So it's "late". How much time is available for testing? How many people can participate? (You'll get a different answer if you say "this must ship tomorrow and I'm the only tester" versus "It ships in mid-2016 and we can hire up to 10 professional testers")

comment Best guidelines to create images for bug reports in big testing team?
" Devs and PMs could go crazy from different ways five testers create screenshots and highlight them." I guess I haven't ever seen this become a real problem. As long as the images can easily be viewed and understood, I would avoid such "standards" as unnecessary. You do have a real bug tracking system, right? You aren't relying solely on pictures?

comment How to downgrade browser versions other than Internet Explorer?
"I am looking for a way to downgrade Chrome/Mozilla/Opera." There is no real "downgrade" process, other than uninstalling, then installing the desired (older) version.

comment Test a Form with no client side validation
I don't think I understand your question. If you observe that it just reads "Error", then I assume you are already testing it, right? How do you test other form fields with a Submit button?
