  • I have answered here, for case - when element is not yet visible. Refer sqa.stackexchange.com/questions/24207/… Dec 9, 2016 at 9:03

Are you sure that your id="folder1177" is not dynamic? If yes, then selecting by ID must work.

Potential issues:

  1. Element might be NOT YET visible. You can try waiting. Debug to see if waiting helps before adding it.

  2. Element might NOT be visible. I can see a scrollbar and English link being somewhere in the middle. Try scrolling to the element.

  3. Check HTML to see if frames are not used. If it is, you will have to switch to frame. Know-How

  1. Right click on pop up and see is there any frame available.

  2. You need to switch to alert. Alert alert= driver.switchTo().alert();
