Move Mouse

Moves the mouse cursor to the specified point in (x,y) coordinates.

Move Mouse is the right choice to be used by the robot to move the mouse cursor to a certain coordinate while accessing the application on a virtual machine. If the robot has direct access to the application controls, we recommend Move to Control.



  • X Coordinate: X-axis point

  • Y Coordinate: Y-axis point


  • Display Name: action display name in your implementation project

  • Wait Before: number milliseconds robot to wait before executing the action.

  • Wait After: number milliseconds robot to wait until moving to the next action.

  • Abort on Error: True/False

  • Retry Times: Specifies the number of times to retry an action if it doesn't end successfully. Default value 0 (no retry); Use -1 if you want to retry indefinitely.

Use Case

Potential Use Cases

  • Move the mouse cursor outside the area of a pop-up message and perform a left click in order to close that window.

  • Use a click and then move the cursor to the end of an application to scroll down.

Examples of Using Move Mouse


In this example, the robot will move the mouse cursor to the main drop-down menu and perform a right-click on that (x,y) coordinate point, which represents one of the values from the drop-down list.
