Hi Aaron,

When using Selenium automation testing, it is best that you use the Actions Class for low-level interactive automation involving input devices like keyboard, mouse, etc. To ensure a positive user experience, make sure that the target element is part of the DOM before attempting to manipulate it.

Some of the commonly used keyboard actions are KeyUp, KeyDown, and sendKeys(). You can also combine Keyboard actions with Mouse actions, e.g., Mouse Hover to a particular menu on the page and perform a combination of KeyUp & KeyDown on that menu.

To perform keyboard actions in Selenium WebDriver, go through the Tutorial On Handling Keyboard Actions In Selenium WebDriver [With Example]

Hope it helps!
