George__,

Welcome to the AutoIt forums. But in future please give your threads sensible titles (as I have now done) - everyone here is looking for help.

The answer is that you probably can click this wandering button - but we need a bit more information first. Is the button in an app or a webpage? Does it always have the same text?

Sorry, It is on a web store and it always has the same text for example to click a dropdown menu or a button like down load where it wpould change dependant on the webpage

George__,

Then look at the _IE_* functions in the Help file and try to identify the button using them. if you run into problems, post the relevant section of the page source and I am sure someone will help you.
