Disable popup blocker for MS Edge thru Desired Capability of Edge Webdriver

It would be simpler if there was an option to disable the popup blocker for MS Edge browsers through the Desired Capability of Edge Webdriver while running tests on saucelabs vm using Selenium 3.4.


Looks like the only way to programmatically do it now is to set the registry setting using an autoIT pre-run executable.

    To have a more generalized solution to this, we plan to have centralized documentation that outlines how-to's that cover different scenarios in cross browser testing.

    You can use powershell script with registry change inside - reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Classes\Local Settings\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\AppContainer\Storage\microsoft.microsoftedge_8wekyb3d8bbwe\MicrosoftEdge\New Windows" /v PopupMgr /t REG_SZ /d no /f.
