Web recording - black screen and the browser hangs


Sometimes when I try to add more steps to existing test cases by recording, the black screen appears on one monitor and there is no possibility to close the program - I need to restart the computer.


  1. Click on the item where you want add more steps.
  2. Click Record Web button.
  3. Choose browser from active browsers (I use Chrome)
  4. Black screen appears.

I use Katalon version 5.4.2, Windows 10 Pro, 64-bit.

Please for advise, what can be the reason?

I am facing a similar issue. When I use the spy object to record on an active browser, the left monitor becomes black and the only way I found to fix this is to reboot my computer. This is very frustrating.Is there a fix for this or a workaround not to fall into this trap?
