Some limitations of Selenium Automation tool are as follows:
1. It does not support and non web-based applications, it only supports web based applications.
2. Its and open source tool so in case of any technical issues you need to rely on the selenium community forums to get your issue resolved.
3. You need to know at least one of the supported language very well in order to automate your application successfully.
4. No inbuilt reporting capability so you need plugins like JUnit and TestNG for test reports.
5. Lot of challenges with IE browser.

[ltr]1. Selenium cannot test windows application:[/ltr]


[ltr]Selenium doesn’t support windows based applications. It supports only web-based applications.[/ltr]


[ltr]2. Selenium cannot test mobile apps:[/ltr]


[ltr]We can test on any operating system and browser on the desktop using selenium but we cant deal mobile testing with selenium alone. But there is a solution for this. You can use Appium to handle iOS and Android native, mobile, and hybrid apps using the WebDriver protocol.[/ltr]


[ltr]3. Limited reporting:[/ltr]


[ltr]With selenium, you couldn’t generate a good report. But there is a workaround. You can generate reports using TestNG or Extent reports.[/ltr]


[ltr]6. Handling pop up windows:[/ltr]


[ltr]Windows-based pops are part of the operating system. It’s beyond selenium’s capabilities. We could use AutoIT to handle the windows based popups.[/ltr]


[ltr]7. Handling captcha:[/ltr]


[ltr]Handling captcha is a limitation in selenium. There are some third-party tools to automate captcha but still, we cannot achieve 100% results.[/ltr]
