In this tutorial we will just not look at the code for automating downloads, uploads and handling user authentication through Selenium using AutoIt tool rather we will going to learn how to use AutoIt in detail, so that we can create our own scripts for any windows operation.
Web applications do not always confine themselves to working entirely on the web. Sometimes they need to interact with the desktop to do things like downloads & uploads. Automating these sorts of workflow is tricky in Selenium. Selenium is confined to automating browsers, so desktop windows are out of scope. If you are looking to automate workflows that go from browser to desktop and back in Selenium, then a little AutoIt is in order.
