Clicking on a Chrome Extension icon

I am too new to ask this ‘correctly’ please be patient.

I am recording a sequence of clicks on the page, that works fine until I click on a Chrome Extention icon and get a message about the desktop. It seems like I am still in the chrome browser and trying to click my extension icon but it thinks it’s the desktop.

Thanks for any help…
