Does anyone know of a plugin for IE to find Web Elements?  Something similar to chropath for Chrome or firebug for Firefox?  I want to see the xpaths for objects in IE.

You sure that's worthwhile doing at this point? https://www.republicworld.com/technology-news/apps/internet-explorer-sunset-date-announced-know-all-details-here.html

The application I am testing is only on IE 11.  Otherwise I wouldn't be trying to do this.
Thanks,
Kevin

Can you save the page to disk, open it in Chrome and then use a modern tool to get the web element path?

I have this working.  It is from a 23 year old company and I don't think they are in business any more.  I lets me enter xPaths and it tells me if they are valid in IE11.  I think that it highlights the object if found.  I also see pieces of code that look like JavaScript that might also be able to do  this.  I don't know from where to call the Java script.

Jeanne...YOur idea of saving the page and examining it with another browser might work.  How do I save the page?  Is it File/Save?

Thanks,

Kevin

Yes. Just file > save. Nothing fancy.
