Microsoft Office Window Selectors

The Microsoft Office 2016 version 1708 (Build 8431.2079) changes the window title of files from "FileName.xlsx - Excel" or "FileName.docx - Word" to "FileName.xlsx - Saved" or "FileName.docx - Saved".

This may cause some problems if your automation project uses selectors which contain the window title. For example, the following selector no longer works if your Excel version is the previously mentioned one: <wnd app='excel.exe' cls='XLMAIN' title='FileName.xlsx - Excel' /> <wnd cls='EXCEL7' title='FileName.xlsx' />. To prevent this issue, we recommend using a dynamic variable selector.
