  • Try with different locator type to locate your WebElement. Post your HTML code to figure out the suitable XPath or CssSelector. Feb 26 '18 at 6:58
  • What is the xpath of the element in Chrome? (Also, if you are automating an application that your team/company is developing, have the developers add unique labels to the elements you need to use for your tests, so you don't have to use detailed xpath which might change when any changes to the page are made - and break your tests)

You can try with Action class or Java script method to click element,

Actions action = new Actions(driver);
action.moveToElement("Element name").click().perform();


js.executeScript("arguments[0].click();", "Element name");

Please use Relative xpath instead of Absolute path.


Update the chrome driver version to 2.39 and also update the chrome browser version to 65.0. Then try running this will work.
