Solution :

The path of your Chrome Driver is incorrect. And you must set the property before WebDriver initialisation as follows.

System.setProperty("webdriver.chrome.driver","D:\\List_of_Jar\\chromedriver.exe") ;

WebDriver wd =new ChromeDriver(); 

String baseUrl = "https://www.google.com";

The path to the driver executable must be set by the webdriver.chrome.driver system properly.


If you are experienced this error, then error means that you have not told your system where to find your driver executable. Unlike when using the Firefox WebDriver you need to download a driver executable that is specific for chrome and builds the connections part between your Java Selenium program and the chrome Webbrowser.


To fix this problem you have to follow these steps;

  • Download the latest Chrome Driver for your operating system. If you are working with windows then choose “chromedriver_win32.zip”
  • Extract the content of the zip file to any place of your computer, that you will remember later.
  • After replacing the location of the chromedriver.exe with the specific location on your computer. Then add the following code to your Selenium program before creating a new instance of ChromeDriver.

That is the solution to the above problem.

Code sample:

A whole working code sample can look like this;

import org.openqa.selenium.WebDriver;

import org.openqa.selenium.chrome.ChromeDriver;

public class ChromeDriverTest {


             * @param args

             * @throws InterruptedException


            public static void main(String
