- Save element screenshot
- Hover cursor at element
- Wait for a few seconds

Accessing Web Elements
It is important to be able to identify the part of a web page that a script needs to interact with e.g. button, form element. The best way to do this is to identify the XPath of the element which can be used in a script.
This note explains how to find the XPath of an element.
Once an identifier for an object has been selected it can be used in a script.
