Assistance with lining up cursor and/or focus of Maestro


I’m not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but I simply can’t seem to get Maestro to “click” in the appropriate place. If it says in the listing of steps, open Chrome, and then I record “click” at a certain location on the Chrome screen, shouldn’t it simply “click” there? It seems to not line up.

I’m wondering if there is some other focus I need to set, or if I need to use different coordinates than the default.
