Welcome Screen

Once you successfully activate a Test Studio license and launch the app, it takes you to the Welcome Screen. In this view you can create or open an existing project and access useful samples and tutorials resources.

This article guieds you throught the different tabs of the Welcome Screen:

Project Section

In the Project section of the Welcome screen, you can choose between creating a new project or opening an existing one. You can pick from a list of recently used projects on the left, or browse your local folders through the Open Local button. You can also open a remote project from a source control repository (Git or TFS).

Project Section

Create a New Project

To create a new project you can choose from several types of testing - Web Testing, Desktop Testing, WPF Testing or Load Testing projects (Load testing is only available in Test Studio Ultimate). Depending on your choice a test of the selected type is being generated by default in the newly created project. The initial test type selected in the beginning does not limit the project to only this type of tests. Any Test Studio test can be added at any time.

Project Type

To create a new project:

  1. Choose the type of testing to start with.

  2. Set the project name and, optionally, change the location folder where Test Studio projects are stored.

  3. Confirm the creation with pressing the OK button. The Cancel button returns you to the previous screen.

Create new Project

The default location where Test Studio creates projects is C:\Users\<yourUsername>\Documents\Test Studio Projects. The Browse Folder button allows you to change this by choosing another folder.

Open an Existing Project

The Recent projects section on the left shows a list of the projects you worked on lately - these are listed with their name and folder location. The Delete icon removes the project from the list and does not remove the actual files from disc.

The Open Local Project option let's you browse to a local folder which contains a Test Studio project to load.

Open Existing Project

Open Source Control

Test Studio provides built-in integration for TFVC and Git based repositories. The Open Source Control option let's you specify a remote repository to clone locally - you can choose from Git or TFS.


Once you open the test project, you can adjust the Test Studio layout and make it fit your environment and needs.

Get Started Section

The Get Started section lets you create the demo project, open the online help documentation and public Telerik forums, and submit your feedback or tickets to the Support team.
