  • Difference between driver.close() and driver.quit() in selenium webdriver

    This article will present to you the difference between driver.close() and driver.quit() .

    driver.close() and driver.quit() are two different methods for closing the browser session in Selenium WebDriver

    Selenium- Difference between driver.close() and driver.quit()

    We will learn below commands in detail

      • driver.close() 
      • driver.quit()

    driver.close()

    This method closes the browser window on which the focus is set. 

    If one browser is open then calling driver.close() closes the current browser window or we can say close() method closes the active WebDriver instance.

    For example During the automation process, If we click on a link on the current browser and it opens a new window and we need to perform some action/validation on the new window so after performing validation then we can close the browser using driver.close() command.

    The following code can be used to close the current browser window:

    driver.close()

    driver.quit() 

    This method basically calls driver.dispose() (internal method) which in turn closes all of the browser windows and ends the WebDriver session . For example if three browsers are opened from a single driver instance , then it will close all the browsers and end the webdriver session.

    We cannot use this driver instance to do other operations after calling quit() ,If you do it will throw an Exception.

    Before ending the execution/program , if we do not use driver.quit() at the end of the program, the WebDriver session will not close properly and files would not be cleared from memory. This may result in memory leak errors.

    The following code can be used to close the all browser windows associated with current driver:

    driver.quit()
    Example:
    package com.test;
    import java.util.Iterator;
    import java.util.Set;
    import java.util.concurrent.TimeUnit;
    import org.openqa.selenium.By;
    import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;
    import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;
    
    public class Demo {
    
    public static WebDriver driver;
    public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
    
    // Create a new instance of the Chrome driver
    
    System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver", "D:\\Drivers\\chromedriver.exe");
    driver = new ChromeDriver();
    
    driver.manage().timeouts().implicitlyWait(10, TimeUnit.SECONDS);
    
    // Launch the URL
    driver.get("https://tutorialshut.com/demo-website-for-selenium-automation-practice/");
    
    // Maximize the window
    driver.manage().window().maximize();
    driver.findElement(By.xpath("//button[text()='New Browser Window']")).click();
    String MainWindow = driver.getWindowHandle();
    
    // To handle all new opened window.
    
    Set s1 = driver.getWindowHandles();
    Iterator i1 = s1.iterator();
    while (i1.hasNext()) {
    String ChildWindow = i1.next();
    
    if (!MainWindow.equalsIgnoreCase(ChildWindow)) {
    
    // Switching to Child window
    
    driver.switchTo().window(ChildWindow);
    
    // get the page title of Child window
    
    String childPageTitle = driver.getTitle();
    
    System.out.println("Title of Child Page is :" + childPageTitle);
    
    // Closing the Child Window.
    
    driver.close();
    
    }
    
    }
    
    // Switching to Parent window i.e Main Window.
    
    driver.switchTo().window(MainWindow);
    
    driver.quit();  //close all the browsers and end webdriver session
    
    }
    
    }
    

    In the above example driver.close() will close the child window only which was opened by clicking on a button present on the main  page.

    driver.quit() will close all the open pages and end the driver session , if we haven’t used driver.close() before then the quit statement will close child and main both the browser windows and will end the driver session as well.
