If I understand your question correctly. The solution is:

browser.waitForAngularEnabled(false); - for disabling Angular browser.waitForAngularEnabled(true); - for enabling Angular

Then switch to the new window and search the angular element.

    Your definition seems incorrect or incomplete. The method you referenced doesn't disable Angular but it does change how Protractor works/waits for different applications to finish loading.

  • It’s referenced to official documentation from Protractor. It says If you need to navigate to a page which does not use Angular, you can turn off waiting for Angular by setting browser.waitForAngularEnabled(false).

    I agree with the explanation in your comment but it's inconsistent with your original answer. Sorry for the pedantry.
