Scroll to bottom of page in Selenium with browser minimized

I’m doing an automation task with selenium via Python, and I need the browser minimized while it runs, but I have encountered a problem where the ActionsChain scroll_by_amount doesn’t seem to work at all. It runs without error but does nothing when the browser is minimized. I need to scroll to the bottom of the page. If I try to scroll to the footer element itself, it says it’s out of bounds because it’s somehow wider than the webpage, even though it could be vertically scrolled to.

TYJ, I found a solution: driver.find_element(By.TAG_NAME, “html”).send_keys(Keys.END)

Your code? In general element must be identified beforehand.

This is not a mistake but a limitation.

JaScript driver.minimize_window() ActionChains(driver).scroll_by_amount(0, any_integer).perform() #Does nothing once browser is minimized I think it may be a bug in Selenium, but since I’m new to the library I’m not certain.

JaScript What a shame. You can scroll to elements but not by amount?
