Using Selenium WebDriver with C# in VS 2010, I compiled a document using automation and then I want to save the file on my desktop. During automation a new window is popping up to "save or open file". Is there any code available in C# Selenium to manipulate this dialog popup?

  • The simple answer is no, but there are workarounds such as Alexey's answer below, or using different application automation frameworks to handle the prompts. – Sam Woods Oct 30 '13 at 15:34

Use profile setting for browsers:

firefoxProfile.setPreference("browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk","text/csv");

Browser initialize

FirefoxProfile profile = new FirefoxProfile();
profile.setPreference("browser.helperApps.neverAsk.saveToDisk","text/csv");
IWebDriver webDriver = new FirefoxDriver(profile);
