How to work on a opened browser window?

If we do not want to open browser through Katalon. Here are the steps to elaborate the requirement.
1. Open Katalon
2. Open a browser manually with the required application
3. Script has the steps that can be executed from the current opened page.

Issue: Katalon not able to identify Opened browser.

Is there any way to recognise opened browser through Katalon?

    Someone knows how to do it? Is it impossible?

    No, Katalon or Selenium can not work with any browser opened manually.

    However you should try to open browser with required application using katalon - as you can specify browser settings in Katalon configuration

    You can use call test case and switch window to work on a window previously opened (No way to recognise a manually opened window as previously stated by others)

    Have a test case to open browser and go to where you want and do what you want.
    Then call a second test case from your first and use Switch to Window, now your second test case will run on the window you previously had open

    Not exactly what you are asking for but it was the solution to for me to trying to achieve something similar.
