    • View or hide the sub-nodes in the test. Right-click the Test node in the tree and select Expand All or Collapse All to view or hide the sub-nodes in the tree. You can also select the Test node and press + or * on the keyboard to expand all the nodes in the test, and - to collapse the nodes.
    • Display the test properties. Right-click the Test node in the tree and then select Settings to display the Test Settings dialog box. Details of the test and its path are displayed.
    • View or hide the sub-nodes of an action. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Expand Sub Tree or Collapse Sub Tree to view or hide the sub-nodes in the action. You can also select a sub-node and press + or * on the keyboard to expand the node and - to collapse the node.
    • Display the action properties. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Action Properties to display the Action Properties dialog box. The name of the action and its path are displayed.
    • Display the action call properties. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Action Call Properties to display the Action Call Properties dialog box.
    • Work with the Object Repository. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Object Repository to open the Object Repository window, which displays a tree containing all objects in the current test.
    • Manage Actions. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Copy or Delete.
      • Select Copy to open the Select Action dialog box and create a copy of the action in your test.
      • Select Delete to remove the action from your test.

    • Run the test. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Run from Action or Run to Action to start a run session from the beginning of the selected action, or to run the test until the beginning of the selected action and then pause the run session.
    • Debug your test. Right-click an action in the tree and then select Debug from Action to begin (and pause) a debug session at the beginning of the selected action.
    • Change the run order of actions. You can perform either of the following steps to move a top-level action (a direct child of the test) in the Test Flow Pane tree, and change the run order of the test accordingly. The action and any sub-actions are moved.
      • Right-click a top-level action in the tree and then select Move Up or Move Down. You can also press Ctrl+Up arrow or Ctrl+Down arrow to move an action and its sub-actions.
      • Drag a top-level action in the tree up or down to the required location. When you drag a selected action, a line is displayed, enabling you to see the location in the tree to which the action will be moved. You can only drag top-level actions. Selecting the parent action automatically includes all its sub-actions. You cannot drag a sub-action, nor can you drag a parent action together with only some of its sub-actions.

        If a test contains a call to an action that does not exist or cannot be found, the action still appears in the tree in the Test Flow pane, and QTP lists the action in the Missing Resources pane.
