    Hi Sam,

    Activate Application action is used to bring the application window to the foreground if the window accidentally might be present at background. It can only be used with Win32 spied elements and it is typically used before actions which would require application window to be set at foreground such as if you are using global send keys or global send key events since they emulate keyboard actions directly on the currently focused element of any screen we wish to automate.

    Hence, first we should activate the application so that the screen is visible and is set at foreground before using such activities.

    Also, whenever we are performing any kind of image based or surface automation as we call it in Blue Prism, we always need to ensure that our application is on foreground so that images can be recognized properly.

    Hope it helps you out and if my solution resolves your query, then please mark it as the 'Best Answer' so that the others members in the community having similar problem statement can track the answer easily in future
