The IE Web Driver Tool enables developers to create automated tests that simulate users interacting with webpages and report back results in Internet Explorer 11. It can also manage testing across multiple windows, tabs, and webpages in a single session.

Building the Sample
Because WebDriver gives any app that knows how to use it the ability to control your browser, it is not completely installed with Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer (KB2976627). To install and enable the remaining components, please follow the instructions in the Developer Guide.
Following that, you will be able to use the Visual Studio solution in this sample as a jumping-off point to build your own apps using the WebDriver API. However those apps will only run on systems specifically enabled to use the WebDriver API.
The WebDriver sample provides a small example application that opens Internet Explorer, navigates to Bing, locates the Bing Search Box, types "WebDriver" into it, and executes the search. With dozens of commands available, this provides an excellent starting point for exploring the WebDriver API in Internet Explorer 11.
