Making mouse clicks with the keyboard - please help

Newbie here.

I hope to be able to scrape data from Google Maps. So far I’m trying to compile the list of keystrokes to reach the elements I hope to copy the content from rather than using the mouse. So I’m not recording macros yet. I’m just getting ready :wink:

I figured out how SHIFT + F10 emulates a right-mouse click.

But I ran into to this hopefully simple hurdle:

When I have reached the element I cant to copy the content from (still without using the mouse): How do I copy the content only using the keyboard.

When I reached the element holding the name (Balraj Sidhu in the blue active element this example) how do I select the actual text = the name. Using the mouse I would just mark and copy the text. It is a bit tricky since the name is also an active link to open a pop up window. Searcing visually for the name is also not an option since the name will not stay the same.

I hope my question is clear.


Can you post an url or similar url, need to detect an xpath (locator of element) after you can store it

Post url please


Sorry I should have added the URL.

Here is is. I don’t know Mr. Balraj Sidhu, but his profile on Google Maps is open and publicly available.

I appreciate your willingness to help.
