[CLOSED] Chrome is being controlled by automated test software
I get this banner "Chrome is being controlled by automated test software" when I run a fex with Chrome as my output. I've seen some stuff online about one fix being for version 76 and earlier. We're currently using major release 83. Here is one fix I found online that is supposed to work post-76 release, but I haven't been able to get it to work. I don't know if that is because it no longer works or I'm not using it correctly. I mainly create web pages with the AppStudio GUI, but I have done some editing of html and javascript code. Any advice would be great! Thanks
var chromeOptions = {
        'excludeSwitchest': ['enable-automation']
chromeCapabilities.set('chromeOptions', chromeOptions);
var driver = new webdriver.Builder().forBrowser('chrome').usingServer('http://localhost:4444/wd/hub').withCapabilities(chromeCapabilities).build();

From what I've read online, the disable-infobars fix doesn't work past Chrome 76.
