Is there a way to interact with the Windows Start menu?

Hi everyone,
I was wondering if you know a way to interact with the Windows “Start” button (and the following menu).

I understand that Katalon is aimed at applications, however it would be very useful for my use-case if I was able that a program is available in a certain position of the main Windows menu.


I don’t believe you can, however, you should be able to launch a batch file that can do some things same as the Start Menu using Java programming. With that, you can check the Windows file directory for whatever.

I don’t know if this will help, but you might be able to use the keyboard shortcut to open the Start Menu as well. The Start Menu shortcut keys are CTRL + ESC. You could try that with a Robot action, like:

import java.awt.Robot
import java.awt.event.KeyEvent

Robot robot = new Robot()
